  • 2 cups cooked chicken breasts, shredded or chopped into cubes You can use rotisserie chicken, cooked chicken, or roast your own chicken breasts following the instructions below
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 stalk finely chopped celery I use a food processor to do this quickly.
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onions
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and stir.
  • Serve chilled or warm.



  • When using rotisserie chicken, I remove the skin from the breasts. You can leave it if you wish.
  • The consistency of this chicken salad is thick and creamy. If you like a really creamy salad, add additional mayo.
  • You can use canned chicken if you wish, though I would never recommend anyone eat chicken from a can. It’s typically high in sodium and contains other additives.
  • If you are looking to make the recipe with no mayo, use plain Greek yogurt or sour cream instead.


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add 2 chicken breasts to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake the chicken for 16-20 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Use a meat thermometer.
