While you certainly can use home-cooked chicken as a base for this chicken salad recipe, you can also try timesaving options like starting with cold rotisserie chicken or fast-food fried chicken leftovers. No chicken? Turkey is always a tasty substitute. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • For 6 grams of fat and 260 calories per serving, use fat-free mayonnaise.
  • Substitute 6 Hard-Cooked Eggs, chopped, for the chicken.
  • Substitute 1 1/2 cups chopped fully cooked ham for the chicken. Omit salt and pepper. Stir in 1 teaspoon yellow mustard.
  • Substitute 2 cans (5 oz each) tuna in water, drained, for the chicken. Stir in 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
  • Stuff tomatoes or avocado with the salad or create a Muffaletta sandwhich by slicing open a large round loaf of artisan bread, pulling out some of the inside bread (save it in the freezer for bread crumbs) and layering up the chicken or ham salad, sliced tomato, slice cucumber, and sliced fresh Mozzarella cheese. Drizzle everything with olive oil and white balsamic or red wine vinegar. Sandwich with the top of the loaf. Wrap and refrigerate until you’re ready to cut it into wedges.
  • Avoiding carbs? Make lettuce wraps, drizzling the salad with your favorite vinaigrette before rolling the wrap.
