Enjoy old fashioned chicken salad with celery either on a salad or in a sandwich. Make chicken salad from canned chicken with a special seasoning.
My family loves my old fashioned chicken salad. It’s simple and easy. And you could either make this chicken salad from canned chicken or you could shred leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken from your local market. I know most people add grapes or other fruit to this recipe but we like our chicken salad with celery and onions. But we do add a secret ingredient. Ok maybe not too secret but a little bit of seasoned salt just makes this pop.

One of the best ways to enjoy this chicken salad is on a sandwich. You could add a little mayonnaise to your favorite sandwich bread and spoon some of this old fashioned chicken salad onto it. Serve with potato salad, chips or pickles. It’s great on a hot summer day. And the fact that this chicken salad is made from canned chicken is a plus. Serve lunch without heating up the kitchen.
What is in this old fashioned chicken salad recipe:
Drain both cans of chicken and place in a large bowl. Shred the canned chicken with a fork until completely shredded.
Add the chopped celery, onion and season with the seasoning salt. Stir to combine
Add the mayonnaise and mix very well. Cover and refrigerate at least a couple of hours allowing flavors to marry. This makes the best sandwiches on just about any kind of bread even pita bread. Or you could use an ice cream scoop to serve it over a salad. This chicken salad is a delicious way to enjoy eating something cool on a hot summer day.

I've only recently become a chicken salad lover. Why only recently? I have no idea. I think someone somewhere along the line made one that did not taste good at all. But now, I love it...especially when it includes red onions!
