Best Chicken Salad - Ever!

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by The Cafe Sucre Fari

An herb and lemony chicken salad, made with a fantastic homemade mayonnaise that takes this already yummy salad right over the top. You can whip it up long before you can run to the store for a more expensive and less tasty product. Fabulous for sandwiches, salads, etc.

Enjoyed this chicken salad very much -- the lemon juice and herbs really give it a fresh flavor. This would be a great party salad for sandwiches and I will definitely make this dish again! Made for Fall PAC, 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For homemade mayonaise - in a glass bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and other ingredients (except the oil). Starting very slowly (just a drop at a time) whisk the oil into the egg yolk mixture. Once an emulsion forms you can increase the oil to a thin stream. Continue whisking in the oil until it is all incorporated. Can be refrigerated up to one week.
  2. Combine chicken with enough mayonnaise to moisten (according to taste). Fold in the celery, scallions and herbs. Season with salt and lots of pepper.
