The BEST Chicken Salad

Uhm I know saying something is “the best” is a huge rep to live up to, but I am not kidding. This is the chicken salad that made my husband love chicken salad. He started liking a lot of things since marrying me haha.

I enjoy making a HUGE freaking sandwich with extra black pepper with this chicken salad. I also love scooping it up with chips, preferably dill pickle chips(GENIUS)

Excuse my lack of nail care….

Anyway here is the recipe!!


3 stocks of celery chopped finely

5-6 green onions chopped

1 can of drained water chestnuts-chopped

1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds

1 can crushed and drained pineapple

4-5 chicken breasts(roasted with S&P and olive oil) shredded

S&P to taste


You can totally use fresh pineapple and you can use canned chicken(Shhh it’s a secret)

This makes about 7-8 sandwiches (big sandwiches(;)


1. Roast your chicken with S&P and olive oil at 375 until cooked through, let cool. Shred that thing!

2. Chop all your veggies. I used a food processor for the celery and water chestnuts. I chopped the onions not too fine and bought the pineapple crushed.

3. Place veggies and pineapple in giant bowl over shredded chicken.

4. In a dry skillet toast your almonds until golden brown. This brings out the flavor!

5. Add almonds to chicken mix and slowly add mayo spoonful by spoonful. I don’t measure this because some prefer less or more mayo so just do your preference.

6. Add S&P to taste and mix well! I like to make mine ahead of time to let sit in the fridge and let the flavors come together!
