Ingredients

  • 4 ½ cups chicken cooked, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • cup mayonnaise
  • cup hummus plain or garlic
  • ½ - ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. dill finely chopped
  • ½ cup celery finely diced
  • ¾ cup pecans toasted
  • 1 cup grapes cut into bite-sized pieces.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl add chicken, mayonnaise, hummus, Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper to taste . Stir until chicken is well coated.
  2. Add dill, celery, pecans, and grapes. Stir until just combined so as not to break apart the grapes.
  3. Chill chicken salad for at least 2 hours before serving.
  4. Serve chicken salad as a sandwich, in a lettuce wrap, or with crackers. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Chicken salad nutritional information is calculated without sandwich bread, lettuce wrap, or crackers.
  • You can use an avocado oil-based mayonnaise.
  • To make your chicken salad low-carb and keto compliant, leave out the grapes (you can replace with more nuts if you'd like!) and serve it in a lettuce wrap or on Parmesan cheese whisps.

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Use a rotisserie chicken. Opt for a natural, or traditional flavor so as not to have any conflicting flavors.
  • Chop small. Cut the chicken and grapes into small bite sized pieces. Finely dice the dill and celery. This ensures each bite has a little bit of everything!
  • Wait to add celery until serving. The crisp veggie sometimes releases liquid as it sits and can cause the chicken salad to be runny.
  • Practice safe food handling. Do not keep this recipe at room temperature for more than 2 hours. If the ambient temperature is greater than 85°-90° Fahrenheit do not let it sit out for more than 1 hour.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep Ahead: This recipe can be made completely in advance. In fact, the flavors get better with time!
  • To Store: Keep this easy chicken salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It can be stored for up to 3-5 days starting the day the chicken is cooked.
  • To Freeze: Since mayonnaise generally separates after freezing and then thawing, freezing is not recommended.
