Chicken Salad

This is a delayed Mother’s Day weekend post 🙂 When I had my mom and sister over on Saturday for lunch, I made my mom’s favorite lunch – chicken salad. I didn’t follow a recipe but just threw together what I thought sounded good. My mom loved it! I served these on croissants – you could do any type of roll, or even lettuce cups.

**Note – I didn’t put any nuts in this salad because I’m allergic, but I think cashews or walnuts would be great!

Chelley’s Chicken Salad

2.5 – 3 lbs chicken, boiled and shredded
1 Gala apple, peeled, cored and diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 handfuls of raisins
Yellow mustard (very small amount)

Combine the chicken, apple, celery and raisins in a large bowl. Add mayonnaise to desired consistency (some people like it drier or creamier than others) and a very small amount of yellow mustard, for flavor.

    Yum – I make a similar one but use dried cranberries instead of raisins (since I’m not a raisin person) – but yum! This just might be my lunch today!
