Easy chicken salad
This quick and easy chicken salad is a recipe my family has been making for a reaaallllly long time! We couldn’t remember where we got the recipe, but only know that everyone loves it. For my family, the hubby loves it, and ALL the kiddo love, which means it’s a keeper! We especially love to make these Rice-a-Roni Chicken Salad sandwiches for get togethers, including bridal and baby showers.
It’s a very simple recipe to make and is a great “chicken salad” recipe to make for parties. It is also a great lunch idea and stores well (if there are any leftovers). Because of that, we make it pretty often.

Variations + SToring Info
Feel free to change up the ingredients and flavors to your liking. Here are some other ingredients you could try:
- Curry powder
- Chopped celery
- Chopped bell peppers
- Pesto sauce
- Chopped water chesnuts
- Grape tomatoes
- Slices of lettuce
STORE leftovers in an airtight container. Leftovers of this chicken salad will stay good for up to 4 days in the fridge. I wouldn’t freeze the leftovers because of the mayonnaise in the recipe. The mayonnaise will separate if heated up again from frozen.
Prepare this chicken salad about 3-4 days ahead of time. Prepare everything, mix it all together, and keep it covered in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.
