 Do you like chicken salad? If you do, you will love this roasted chicken salad recipe I am about to share with you. This chicken salad is made from tender, juicy roasted chicken breast shredded with celery and sweet pickle relish, mixed together with creamy mayonnaise and a splash of sweet pickle juice for good measure.

A Childhood Memory About Chicken Salad

I can remember watching my mama make chicken salad when I was a child. She used a metal hand-held chopper to chop up the celery and pickles. The chopper looked kind of like a biscuit cutter with sharp scalloped edges. She gave me the chopper to try once or twice. I thought it was fun to chop!

Once she had the chicken salad all mixed together and into the serving dish, she would sprinkle it paprika. I asked her what the paprika was for and what it tasted like, her reply was: “It doesn’t have a taste. It just makes it look pretty”. I think this was my first memory of what presentation was.

The Mayonnaise

My mama makes the best chicken salad on the planet and I don’t even begin to try to replicate it. Instead, I issue the help of Sir Kensington’s mayonnaise to give my chicken salad that special something that makes it different and delicious. I first tried Sir Kensington’s products about a year ago when I  used it in my Curry Chicken and Broccoli Casserole. I was blown away at just how good “REAL” mayonnaise can be and best of all, I didn’t have to make it myself.

Adding Sir Kensington’s mayonnaise is the best thing I ever did to my chicken salad recipe!

Enhance the flavor of this roasted chicken salad by using Sir Kensington’s products. The classic mayo is my favorite, but the flavors in their chipotle mayonnaise gave this my chicken salad a spicy twist to change things up even more. I’m excited to try the sriracha mayonnaise and even the Dijonnaise for even more great flavors. David is anxious to try the products on the grill and talks about trying the samples every day since we received them.

How To Make Roasted Chicken Salad

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

Place the chicken breasts, skin side up, on the prepared sheet pan; rub them with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until done. Allow the chicken to cool.

When the chicken is cool, remove and discard the skin and bones. Shred with your fingers or chop the chicken into chunks, as desired; place the chicken into a medium mixing bowl.

Chopped pickles and celery.

Add the chopped sweet pickles and celery. Add one tablespoon of Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise at a time to the chicken and relish, stirring well between each addition**.

Continue to add the mayonnaise until the chicken salad becomes the desired consistency you prefer. Once I get the roasted chicken salad to the consistency I want, I then add a little (about 1 tablespoon) pickle juice for good measure and a wee bit extra flavor and twang.

Serve with crackers or make into a sandwich with toasted bread.

Notes:

*   SHORT CUT – use store prepared rotisserie chicken to save time!

** I usually add about 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise to 2 cups of chicken and relish. A lot depends on how much chicken is rendered from the chicken breasts, and your personal preference.
