This chicken salad is a must. It’s actually two recipes in one because you can follow this exact recipe (add some lemon juice) for tuna salad. My mama used to make both versions growing up. It’s packed with protein and keeps you full whether in a sandwich, over a salad, with crackers for dipping, or plain. You can always play with the recipe as you mix at the end and add more salt or other ingredients. If you don’t like mustard, feel free to leave it out. This recipe is a huge portion meant for my family of four for the week. You can cut it in half if you need to, but remember it stays good in the fridge for a week so it’s excellent for meal prep!
