Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad

I decided to make this my first post of the baby shower recipes, since lately I’ve had a lot of requests for Chicken Salad recipes.  Now, if I get anymore I can direct them to my blog instead of typing it out again and again.  (Okay, so I really copy/paste which isn’t a big deal…but I like to make it sound like I put more effort into it.)   🙂

For this recipe, I used a combination of a recipe I’ve used in the past and a new diabetic recipe I found on Vanderbilt’s website.  Remember, this chicken salad recipe is diabetic friendly.  So, I used light mayo but you can definitely use regular if you prefer.

The grapes and celery added a nice crunch to each bite, while the green onion and parsley added a lot of flavor.  My guests raved about this dish and one of them kept checking my blog every day to see if I posted the recipe yet.  I served it on a plate of lettuce leaves along with whole wheat (for the diabetic) and regular pita pockets.

Printable Recipe

8-10 Servings

4 cups cooked chicken, diced and chilled
2 cups chopped celery
2 cups sliced, seedless grapes
4 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2/3 cup chopped green onions
1 cup light mayonnaise (more/less based on your tastes)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix mayo, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Combine mayo with chicken mixture. Chill.

Serve in pocket pitas with a leaf of lettuce (if desired).

**The ingredient measurements are approximates as I wasn’t really measuring while making it.  You can easily halve this recipe.

  1. Yeah! I never know how to do chicken salad. This looks yummy,

  2. I love chicken salad! And I appreciate that you included grapes. Chicken salad is so much better with some type of fruit thrown in.

  3. Yum, I’m making this next week for sure! I’m psyched you found the recipe on Vanderbilt’s site – I attended Vanderbilt for grad school 🙂

  4. Just yesterday I did a google search for a chicken salad recipe with grapes in it. Thanks for posting one.

  5. This looks great, Nikki, and the baby shower pics are phenomenal; thanks for doing this website. I can’t tell you how delighted I am with it over and over again.

    I’ve been making chicken salad after a recipe from the Narrows restaurant (I think that’s where it came from), adding a tablespoon of stone ground mustard to mayonnaise, balsalmic vinegar, and a shot of hot sauce to the mayo and throwing in dried cherries (Michigan’s are the best), and walnuts with the onion.

    Thanks for posting this one–! Always loving you and never cease being amazed at your creativity, Mom Gladd
