Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

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.
