The Best Chicken Salad

When you have leftover chicken, (or turkey after Thanksgiving), why not just add a few fresh ingredients and transform it into a delicious chicken salad sandwich for a yummy next day lunch!  (I've even used the Costco shredded canned chicken for this recipe and it comes out scrumptious every time!)  Red or green seedless grapes add the fresh, juicy pop and sliced almonds add the crunch factor that put this salad way over the top.  Serve it simply on big, buttery croissants with red or green leaf lettuce and you have leftovers perfection!

  • 3 cups chopped or shredded chicken or turkey (I like to use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup sliced Almonds
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh cracked black Pepper

Mix all ingredients together well. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for an hour. Serve in buttery croissants, (or your favorite rolls), with fresh green or red leaf lettuce!
