One of my favorite sandwiches is a chicken salad. I was in the mood for a chicken and bacon club sandwich, but at the last minute, I decided to make a chicken salad and I just crumbled up the bacon and just mixed it right in. It was delicious. It was a great combination. Using an applewood smoked bacon is best. You really want that bacon flavor to come through. This is my go to chicken salad recipe and it’s delicious. I add sliced crunchy almonds but you certainly don’t have to if you’re not a nut fan. I LOVE nuts…some of my good friends are nuts. Haha 🙂
You will love this chicken salad. You don’t have to put it on bread….it’s great scooped on some romaine lettuce or served with crackers. I recommend a nice glass of Pinot Grigio to go with it. Mm-m-m-m.
Chicken Salad with Bacon
2 cups leftover cooked chicken breast (cut up)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (more or less)
2 tablespoons diced onion
1 tablespoon diced celery (optional)
salt and pepper
2 slices cooked crumbled bacon
a few sliced almonds (I like a lot) love the texture….crunch crunch
Just mix everything up and slap a scoop onto your bread or salad or whatever you’re going to do with it. Enjoy!
It’s even better the next day!
