Easy Chicken Salad with Grapes

Easy Chicken Salad with Grapes

I am always interested in a recipe that makes workday lunches (or other meals) super quick to come together. This chicken salad recipe fits the bill, and it’s super tasty!

I love it almost as much as my deli-style tuna salad.

I make chicken salad with grapes and I also always use canned chicken. You could use chicken meat that you cook yourself (like bake a few chicken breasts and shred well before making this), but I think the canned chicken meat works well and makes this super fast to put together.

This chicken salad recipe is creamy, crunchy, flavorful, and still super simple. I love it all on its own with crackers or cucumber slices, but it also makes great chicken salad sandwiches too!

If you want to make this a full meal, here are some things that may go well with chicken salad:

Which do you prefer, chicken salad or tuna salad? xo. Emma

Easy Chicken Salad with Grapes

a simple chicken salad recipe made with grapes and canned chicken

20
ounces
canned chicken (in water)
two cans

2-3
tablespoons
red onion
chopped

½
cup
red seedless grapes
cut

½
cup
almonds
sliced


cup
mayo

1
tablespoon
apple cider vinegar

1
tablespoon
dijon mustard

½
tablespoon
honey

½
teaspoon
salt

¼
teaspoon
pepper

¼
teaspoon
cayenne

1-2
tablespoons
parsley
chopped

Chop the red onion so it’s in very small pieces.

Cut the grapes in half or fourths, depending on how large they are.

Drain the canned chicken and add to a bowl. Shred any large pieces.

Add all other ingredients to the bowl and mix well.

This chicken salad is best the day it is made, but if you store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator it will keep for at least 2-3 days. 

I generally use parsley in this recipe BUT if I don’t have it I have substituted with other fresh herbs before like cilantro and that works well, too.
