I am a big fan of homemade chicken salad. So when I grilled out the other night, I grilled an extra chicken breast for me to use for my chicken salad recipe. I simply didn’t want to use canned chicken because there are some additives. I just don’t want to consume them! And homemade chicken salad just tastes so much better when you use freshly grilled chicken instead of canned.
So today, I cut my cooked chicken breast into 1-inch cubes. I put them in my food processor and pulsed it until it was broken down into smaller pieces. And it was perfect for chicken salad! It turned out beautifully with my homemade mayo….yum!
You can use this as a sandwich spread, on crackers, on a bed of lettuce, on half an avocado, or in a wrap. It is a multi-purpose kind of meal!
This homemade chicken salad is naturally gluten and grain-free. Use it on top of lettuce or wrapped in a lettuce leaf for a grain-free meal. Or with gluten-free crackers or a gluten-free wrap for a gluten-free meal. One of my personal favorite ways of eating this is to spread it on top of slices of cucumber. Filling, refreshing, and just plain yummy!
