Favorite Chicken Salad

I have found the perfect chicken salad recipe for any occasion. The first time I ever made this I was surprised with some of the ingredients, grapes… almonds?! I quickly realized how tasty and flavorful this recipe was and I have been consistently making it since then!

This is the perfect whole 30 recipe as it is so easy to make and eat. It doesn’t require any heating up and it can be eaten as is! I love to enjoy this chicken salad in a cucumber roll-up or a zucchini roll-up… so tasty!!


All you need for this whole 30 Chicken Salad recipe is 1 pound of shredded chicken, compliant mayo, dijon mustard, garlic powder, celery, grapes, almonds, and cooked bacon (optional).

I almost always cook my chicken in the Instant Pot because I love how moist it comes out and how quickly it takes to cook.

Slice up your grapes and celery and add them a bowl. Cut bacon up into bits and slice almonds. Add to same bowl along with shredded chicken. Add the rest of your ingredients and mix well.

I usually refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving so the flavors have time to blend well. Serve as a side, as your main dish, or as a snack!
