Basic Chicken Salad

Basic Chicken Salad

I use sweet bell pepper relish to add a little zing to this recipe, but feel free to use sweet pickle relish or a dill pickle relish. Either one will give nice flavor.


  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons finely chopped purple onion
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise, or more, to taste

I didn't like chicken salad, Member frankie2042

I Baked a chicken and like always it was to much. I live alone and I don't have my growing boys to eat up everything anymore. I did not want to throw the chicken away. So I thought what would my mother do""make chicken salad"". I don't like chicken salad so have never made it, so I looked online and found this recipe. Long story short, I now Love chicken salad. It is good for sandwiches or just with crackers when I come home after work with a glass of wine. I am making it today.
