Chicken Salad is another one of those items that everyone has opinion to add. At the end of the day, you have chicken usually mayo and then all the other ingredients that you love in your chicken salad. This is my plain “jean” chicken salad. We have several favorites but this is an easy go to. I’ll share our others soon. This was a special request from Chris for Father’s Day lunch. We love our plain “jean” chicken salad on flaky croissants. Happy Summer!- Amanda
Amanda Jean’s Chicken Salad
1 1/2 cups chicken, cooked, finely shredded
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, thinly sliced
1 T lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1/8 t pepper, freshly ground
1/3 cup Hellmann’s light mayo
2 T bell pepper, finely chopped
2 t prepared mustard
In a mixing bowl combine chicken, celery, green onions, lemon juice, and pepper. Stir in mayo, bell pepper, and mustard. Cover and chill for at least one hour.
Serve your chicken salad on crackers or our family favorite, croissants. This makes about enough chicken salad for 4 croissant sandwiches. Plus it makes great leftovers.
