Chicken salad is such an easy option for dinner and it can be made in so many different ways! Serve it on rolls, over a salad mix, or as a lettuce wrap.

Chicken salad is also terrific for a picnic or a day when you need a no-cook recipe. It’s one of my favorite ways to use a rotisserie chicken!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 golden delicious apple, chopped
  • 1 8 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, quartered
  • 1 10.5 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 8 rolls for serving

I tend to throw in whatever suits my fancy at the moment so feel free to substitute some of the ingredients.

Other fruit options that would work:

  • Mangoes
  • Cherries

You can also use any type of apples or seedless grapes that are available to you.

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add shredded chicken, chopped apples, pineapple tidbits, green onions and cashews and mix together.
  • In a small bowl, combine mayo, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Add mayo mixture to the chicken mixture and mix well.
  • Then add the grapes and oranges and gently mix so they don’t squish.

Top Tips

For a healthier version you can swap:

  • light soy sauce for the regular soy sauce
  • swap the mayo for Greek yogurt or a mix of half mayo and half Greek yogurt
  • replace the rolls with large romaine lettuce leaves
