  • Celery- This will need to be diced.
  • Scallions- thinly sliced.
  • Parsley- Use fresh chopped parsley for this recipe.
  • Mayonnaise- This will add the creamy texture of the salad.
  • Lemon Zest- Zest your lemons before juicing them.
  • Garlic- Minced.
  • Mustard- You will need to get dijon mustard for this recipe.
  • Lemon Juice- Use fresh lemon juice for the best flavoring.
  • Sugar- This will be used as a sweetener.
  • Worcestershire Sauce- This will add a smokey flavor to your recipe.
  • Salt- This will bring out all those delicious flavors.

  • Black Pepper- This will be used to taste.

How to Make Chicken Salad with Grapes

Adding all the prepared salad ingredients in a bowl.

Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, paprika, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl until fully combined.

Adding all the dressing ingredients in a bowl.

Pour one of the mixtures to the other bowl and combine everything together.

Combining the salad dressing and salad ingredients together.

Immediately serve with your choice of bread, lettuce, or just to eat like it is.

Can I Use Canned Chicken for Chicken Salad?

This Chicken salad recipe used cooked and shredded chicken. I recommend using rotisserie chicken for the best results and best taste. However, if you want to, you can use canned chicken, but preparing your own chicken will be best.

Should I Use Green or Red Grapes?

This Chicken Salad recipe calls for green grapes. There is a difference between red and green grapes that will change the flavor of the salad a bit. The sweetness and sourness of the green grapes really help bring out the flavors and is the best one to use.

  • 4 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken I used rotisserie chicken breasts
  • 1 cup halved green grapes
  • ½ cup small diced celery
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

For the dressing:

  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 1 small clove
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • In a large bowl, add the chicken, grapes, celery, scallions, and parsley. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, garlic, dijon mustard, lemon juice, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, paprika, and pepper until fully combined.
  • Add the dressing to the bowl with the salad ingredients. Stir to combine until everything is coated in the dressing. Serve immediately on bread, lettuce, or eat it as is!


This is an extremely flavorful chicken salad. The grapes give a touch of sweetness that really makes it special.
The dressing packs a flavor punch and is amazing on its own as a dressing for regular salads or even potato salad!
The crunch from the celery gives a nice texture to the overall salad.
With 4 cups of chicken, the salad is lightly dressed. If you like a more saucy chicken salad, add an additional ¼ cup of mayonnaise, it will not affect the taste much of the dressing since it is already very flavorful. Or, you can use fewer ingredients as well.
This is great for customizing. Use this recipe as a base and add other ingredients like pecans, dried cranberries, apples, etc.
