There are many variations that you can try in this recipe, depending on your preferences and what you have on hand. Here are some suggestions:

  • You can use different types of lettuce, such as iceberg, romaine, or spinach, to add more crunch and color to your salad.
  • You can add more or less nuts, dried fruits, or cheese to your salad, to adjust the sweetness and saltiness levels.
  • You can use different kinds of dressing, such as mayonnaise, yogurt, sour cream, or ranch dressing, to suit your taste buds.
  • You can use different kinds of bread, such as whole-wheat, rye, or sourdough, to make your sandwich more filling and nutritious.
  • You can add other ingredients to your sandwich or salad, such as bacon, ham, turkey, avocado, tomato, cucumber, or lettuce.

Tips and Tricks:

  1. To make the chicken salad more tender and juicy, you can marinate it in the dressing for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight in the refrigerator. You can also use leftover cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken for convenience.
  2. To make the salad more crunchy and flavorful, you can toast the nuts and dried fruits in a skillet over medium heat for a
    few minutes, stirring frequently. You can also add some fresh herbs, such as parsley, dill, or basil, to your salad for extra aroma and taste.
  3. To make the sandwich more filling and satisfying, you can layer the chicken salad with cheese slices on your bread of choice. You can also add some lettuce leaves or tomato slices to your sandwich for more freshness and color.
  4. To make the salad more portable and easy to eat, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can also pack it in a lunch box or a thermos with some ice packs to keep it cold and fresh.

1 cup red seedless grapes, sliced

1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream


  • Boil Chicken until fully cooked (I like to use cut up pieces of chicken on the bone. It makes the moistest chicken salad.).
