Easy Chicken Salad

When I think of chicken salad I think of tacky wedding showers, baby showers, or any large gathering of women ooo-ing and ahh-ing over something. Its cheap and easy to make in large quantities so that makes it perfect for those events. I think that stereotype has always been off putting to me and I stayed away from the classic chicken salad. But I had leftover chicken and I figured I would give this a go!

This recipe isn't super exact because I was just using leftovers and didn't measure stuff exactly. But it so easy you really don't need to measure everything out!

About 2 cups Cooked Chicken cut into small cubes
2 huge spoonfuls of Mayonnaise
2 green onions chopped
1 rib of celery chopped
1 handful of grapes chopped
a sprinkle of Basil and Oregano
Salt & Pepper

The chicken I used for this recipe was leftover from my recipe for Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken, that you can find HERE. A good mix of light and dark meat is perfect for this recipe.

Take your chopped chicken and add in the celery, grapes, and green onions. Add the mayonnaise. if you think it's still too "dry" add a little more mayo until you get the right consistency. Season with the basil, oregano, salt and pepper.

And that is it! Super quick and really yummy!
