Amazingly Good Chicken Salad

This is a great chicken salad recipe given to me years ago by a friend. I serve it on homemade finger rolls, the dough is made in the breadmaker (crescent roll recipe). This makes quite a large amount, enough for 48 finger rolls. I always get requests for this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 chicken breasts (bone in)
  • Kraft mayonnaise (to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix (in packet)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper (if desired)


  1. Boil chicken breasts until tender (about 45 minutes).
  2. Cool and remove chicken from bones and chop fine.
  3. Mix mayonnaise, Good Seasons Italian seasoning, lemon juice and salt and pepper (if desired)- add to chicken and mix well.
  4. Better if made the day before serving so flavors can meld.
  5. Refrigerate immediately.
  6. May need to add extra mayonnaise the next day and a little extra seasoning if desired.
