Southern, Homestyle Chicken Salad Recipe

Ready In
Prep Time
Cook Time
Although this chicken salad recipe is very basic, it is still creamy and full of flavor, yet still enough room to customize it just the way you like. It has just the right amount of crunch from the onions and celery with that perfect blend of spice from the celery salt and other seasonings. Not to mention that kick of light sweetness from the sweet relish.

1. Season chicken breast with black pepper, celery salt, onion powder and garlic powder. You can also add more spices if you like.

2. Place chicken in a large skillet, add chicken broth and simmer covered on medium heat for 7 minutes per side or until done. When chicken is done, let it cool and shred. Set aside.

3. In a bowl add chicken, onions, celery and eggs, toss to combine.

4. Stir in mayonnaise, sweet relish and the seasonings (black pepper, onion & garlic powder, celery salt) to enhance the flavor. Remember to taste it as you mix in the seasonings to check for the perfect balance.

5. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Overnight is best to maximize all the flavors.

6. Sandwich between a buttery bakery croissant with lettuce and tomatoes.
