11 Quick and Easy Chicken Salad Recipes

Chicken salad recipes are great for so many reasons! They make such an easy lunch that you can take on the go–put it on a sandwich, stuff it in an avocado or a tomato and you have a meal. These 11 Quick and Easy Chicken Salad Recipes offers a little something for everyone from a tropical to Mexican to Italian version.

I love how easy these salads become when you buy a rotisserie chicken. Once you pull the chicken and shred it, all you have to do is add the remaining ingredients, give it a stir and wallah! Lunch or even dinner has never been so easy and healthy. Another tip I like to give people is to either use all Greek yogurt or at least sub half of the mayo for Greek yogurt. I promise you won’t even notice the difference and it makes the chicken salad a healthier option.

I hope you find something you like and can share it at a picnic, bring it to work for lunch or even send it with your kids in their lunchboxes.


Simple Curry Chicken Salad is a lightened up version of classic chicken salad with rich, warm curry added in. Shredded chicken is mixed together with Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, honey and curry and then combined with golden raisins, shredded carrots, chopped celery, fresh green onion and parsley. This is a nice option for a picnic, weekly lunches or a shower or brunch!
