Chicken Salad with Almonds


2 people made this

This is a super simple salad with only six ingredients but it is so satisfying! A great use for leftover chicken.


Serves: 2 

  • 60g blanched slivered almonds
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 315g cooked chicken meat, chopped
  • 1 stick celery, chopped

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Place almonds in a non stick frying pan. Toast over medium-high heat, shaking frequently. Watch carefully, as they burn easily.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, lemon juice and pepper. Toss with chicken, almonds and celery. Serve atop lettuce leaves or in a sandwich.

As written, this recipe is pretty tasteless. I wouldn't serve it as-is. It IS a pretty good base though, as far as achieving a decent chicken salad consistency. You could go several ways with the seasoning in this to make a great chicken salad. I ended up adding onion powder, garlic powder, minced onion, sriracha, cumin, paprika, and a little splenda and it turned out very well. - 14 May 2013
