Ace's Gala Chicken Salad

Recipe by Adam from CT
READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 1 bowl


  • 2
    cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1
    gala apples (use can always use another kind...but then it wont be Gala Chicken Salad)
  • 23
    cup celery
  • 12
    cup sliced almonds
  • 12
    tablespoon kosher salt (or reg, I just love the taste of koher)
  • 14
    tablespoon pepper
  • 1
    lemon, juice of
  • 34
    cup mayonnaise (I usually use light)


  • Put the chicken in a large bowl.
  • Dice the apple into small pieces (the smaller the better).
  • Dice the celery just as small and add the apples celery and almonds to the chicken.
  • Mix in the salt and pepper and lemon juice.
  • Add the mayo with a large spoon and mix until the chicken is evenly covered.
  • I know this is hard to do -- but cover and leave overnight. The flavors will mix well together in the fridge.
  • You can eat it the day it's made, it just might have a little strong lemon taste -- that mixes overnight and blends well.
  • You can always add cranberries or rasins if you want, but I like it just as is.
  • Enjoy!
