Instructions

Creamy chicken salad is a versatile dish that can be served as a filling for sandwiches, wraps, or as a standalone salad.  Its creamy texture, combined with the crunch of vegetables, makes it a delightful choice for any occasion.  This recipe strikes the perfect balance between richness and freshness, creating a dish that is both comforting and refreshing.  Whether you’re preparing it for a quick weekday lunch or a weekend gathering, this creamy chicken salad is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Method: 

  1. Shred or dice the chicken into bite-sized pieces. I like to keep mine a bit chunky but cut to whatever size you prefer is perfect.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Greek yoghurt, and Dijon mustard. Whisk until smooth and well combined. 
  3. This creamy dressing will serve as the base for your chicken salad.
  4. Add the chopped chicken to the bowl with the dressing. 
  5. Toss gently to coat the chicken evenly with the creamy dressing.
  6. Fold in the diced celery, red onion, capsicum, and chopped parsley into the chicken mixture. These vegetables will add crunch, colour, and freshness to the salad.
  7. Season the chicken salad with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preferences.
  8. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the salad to an airtight container. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to develop, and the salad to chill.
  9. Once chilled, serve the creamy chicken salad on its own as a refreshing salad or use it as a filling for sandwiches, wraps, or lettuce cups. Garnish with additional parsley if desired.
  10. Enjoy your creamy chicken salad! It’s perfect for picnics, potlucks, or a simple lunch at home.
