Loaded Chicken Salad {Whole30 Approved!}

This chicken salad recipe is a staple at our house- my family loves it! It’s super easy, can be thrown together pretty quickly, and is a great make-ahead meal to keep on hand for a quick grab-n-go option.


Chicken Salad {Whole30 Approved!}
  • 2- 12.5 oz Cans of Chicken Breast {We use Kroger brand- it's Whole30 approved.}
  • ½ Cup of Chopped Green Grapes
  • ½ of a Fuji or Honey Crisp Apple, Chopped Small
  • ⅓ Cup of Chopped Celery
  • ⅓ Cup of Slivered Almonds
  • ¼ Cup of Chopped Dill Pickle
  • ¼ Cup of Chopped Green Onions
  • ⅓ Cup of Homemade Mayo- More or Less to Taste {Recipe Below}
  • A Few Dashes of Dehydrated Onion
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until chunks of chicken are all broken and chicken in shredded.
  2. Cooked chicken breast can be used instead of canned. {We usually use canned because it's fast and easy!}
  3. ENJOY!!

While doing a round of Whole30, I enjoyed this recipe on a bed of spinach, with a few plantain chips or eaten taco-style in a romaine lettuce leaf.

Here’s the mayo recipe that I use. And if you’d like my advice- buy an immersion blender, if you don’t have one. They’re worth the 25 bucks. Promise. I use mine ALL of the time and often wonder why I ever tried to make mayo without one. What a pain!!  This is the one I have. And as long as I hold the blender at the bottom of the jar STRAIGHT OVER THE YOLK and don’t lift it, at all, it makes the most perfect mayo. Every. Single. Time.
