You’ll be surprised by this recipe too because it has no mayo in it, we use greek yogurt instead to make it a bit more healthy! I love the tanginess of the yogurt, I think it’s perfect for tying all these flavors together into one delicious sandwich!

My boys usually aren’t huge chicken salad sandwich eaters, but they love this one. Sometimes we throw in some grapes or nuts to give it a little different flavor or texture but my favorite way to eat it is just like this recipe shows you!

We’ve made this recipe super quick and easy by using can chicken, you can find it in the same aisle as the tuna. The cans are a bit larger too so be on the lookout for it!

How to Make Simple Chicken Salad

Ingredients You Need

  • 1 Can of Chunked Chicken, you can use two chicken breasts that are baked and diced
  • 1 Cup Celery, Diced
  • 1/2 Cup Green Onions, diced

I like to serve this with either just some chips or a side salad. It makes a great meal to have with the girls when I have them over. Last year we had a quick meal on the back deck while the kids were playing and this is what I served. It was simple and a huge hit!

Do you make chicken salad? I’ve had so many different recipes but this one is probably my favorite.  Make plans to throw this together and head out for a picnic in the park with your kiddos soon!
