I wanted a different kind of chicken salad for sandwiches, so I put on my thinking cap and this is what I came up with. Now whenever we barbecue chicken breasts, we cook extras just for this recipe. This is also good served with crackers for an appetizer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop chicken breasts into approximately 1/4 inch dice.
  2. Add onion, celery and jalapeno (if desired) and combine.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken mixture. Refrigerate.
  4. This is good served on hard rolls and topped with tomato and shredded lettuce.

Delicious! I actually used this filling to make quesadillas for dinner. Kids loved them! Thanks for posting!

Fantastic! Super flavorful. This is very similar to a recipe I found on Pillsbury's website. It used 4 cups precooked deli rotisserie chicken, did not have the celery or vinegar, added bacon, and was served over lettuce. I like your version with the vinegar, but I did leave out the celery and use the rotisserie chicken since I had some on hand (and I added a bit of bacon!) I used homemade barbecue sauce and pickled jalapeno. Thanks for sharing!

Liked the light barbecue flavor this imparts. We used green onion (personal preference) and more mayo, celery and vinegar.
