Recipe: Chicken Salad

26 May

Let’s face it. When it’s 90 degrees outside, it’s darn difficult to get motivated to slave over a stove. I mean, really, that’s just about the worst thing I can think of. (Now, if you’ve got awesome air conditioning and your kitchen feels like winter, you might feel differently.) For those of us who cringe at the thought of sweating over a hot stove after sweating at the park with the kiddos all afternoon, this recipe is a lifesaver.

Chicken Salad


  • 4 cups cubed chicken (cooked)
  • 1 cup celery, cut fine
  • 1 tbsp onion, minced
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp seasoned salt
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. Bake chicken 1 ½ hours at 300 degrees. Season with salt, pepper, and seasoned salt.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients.
  3. Serve on croissants.
