The Best Chicken Salad

The best-ever Chicken Salad recipe, perfect for lunch, on-the-go, or hosting! It’s the ultimate make-ahead meal that gets more flavorful with time!

I’m a total Chicken Salad lover, and I think this is the best recipe out there. I’ve tried so many, and this one always wins. It’s the best! I’m so excited to share it today.

A few reasons I love chicken salad:
Party Hit: Make a big batch, pop it on mini croissants, and watch it steal the show!
Outdoor Fun: Perfect for picnics or camping. Just toss it in a cooler with some bread. So much better than a soggy PB&J!
Super Easy: Quick to make and tastes amazing.
Gets Better: Let it chill—the flavors get even better. The perfect make-ahead meal!

  • 2 cups prepared rotisserie chicken, diced
  • ½ cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries (or try cherry-infused cranberries!)
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced (½ cup)
  • ¼ cup good mayo (Hellman's/Best Foods)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream (light works!)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1½ teaspoons poppyseeds, optional
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Enjoy with
  • Croissants or other sandwich rolls (add some lettuce for a sandwich)
  • Thinly sliced apples, celery sticks, crackers (like wheat thins!)
