Easy Walnut Chicken Salad

categories: ,
Walnut Chicken Salad2 Whenever we have leftover chicken meat from a rotisserie chicken I love to make chicken salad. I don’t know why I love chicken salad so much, but I really do, especially with walnuts! The walnuts really break up the creamy and salty flavors of the chicken and mayo. Next time you have some extra meat on your rotisserie chicken, shred it up and throw it into a chicken salad. Chill it and use it on sandwiches (or just eat it out of the container ;)).
  • Approx. 1/3 rotisserie chicken meat, shredded and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 – 1/2 c. mayo
  • Approx. 1 c. chopped/halved walnuts
  • 1/2 head chopped lettuce
    • Chopping lettuce: Clean a full head of romaine, in-tact, pat dry with paper towels, lay it on a cutting board and chop it into shreds. For chicken salad I try to use the crunchier bottom part and hearts of the romaine, then save the leafier green top part for salads. Then it won’t wilt in the chicken salad.
