[PALEO] Chicken Salad


Recommended Posts

I've been making this for a couple years now. I love it. It is a great way to use up a rotisserie chicken or any leftover chicken meat. Turkey could also be used if you like turkey. Eat it on bread as a sandwich (not paleo, obviously) or in a lettuce leaf, or like I do and just eat it with a fork out of the bowl. This makes a huge amount, but can be adjusted up or down.


1 whole batch paleo mayo (about a cup and a half)

1/2 a rotisserie chicken (or about 1-1.5 pounds cooked chicken meat) shredded or diced up.

4 celery stalks, diced

3/4-1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (I leave them raw, but you could certainly toast them first)

2 small or 1 large apples - diced (these can be whatever kind you want, but should be something with a crisp texture and some sweetness. I use fuji or honeycrisp)

1 cup golden raisins


I sometimes add a bit of extra salt, a splash of lemon juice, and some black pepper. Just mix everything up in a bowl until it's all coated with the mayo. Some other ideas include diced avocado cubes, or mash the avocado and mix it with the mayo, grapes, dried apricots or other dried fruit instead of the raisins.

"When I can no more stir my soul to move, and life is but the ashes of a fire; When I can but remember that my heart once used to live and love, long and aspire - O be thou then the first, the one thou art; Be thou the calling before all answering love, and in me wake hope, fear, boundless desire." - George MacDonald
