Very Simple Chicken Salad

Here is a quick, cool summer meal that my children enjoyed. I had all the ingredients except for the chicken so I bought 1 fully cooked roasted chicken. I took all the meat (white and dark) off the bone and placed in a mixing bowl. To that I added a heaping spoonful of mayonnaise, a small handful of raisins and walnuts. I chopped up 2 stalks of celery and 1 apple. Used about 1/4 of a teaspoon of paprika and salt and pepper to taste. Mixed it all up. My children ate it with whole wheat bread but for a low-carb option, just wrap the salad in lettuce.


  1. we like that salad too, for a different spin I add curry powder for a curry chicken salad. Soo good when our temps are crazy hot as expected today.

  2. Curry powder is so fantastic with this recipe!! Thanks for adding that tip. I actually prefer it with the curry but because I made it for the kids I omitted it. Next time, I'll make it like that for myself or for lunch with my girlfriends. Great idea.
