Chicken salad recipe

The chicken salad is a quick and easy recipe that is ideal for an appetizing lunch even when it's hot: a single dish or a complete second course, ready in a quarter of an hour. This dish is made with roasted or boiled chicken, crispy celery and lettuce, and a light mayonnaise that wraps the ingredients without overpowering them.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 400 g of boiled or cold roasted chicken
  • 100 g of white celery
  • lettuce
  • pitted black olives
  • capers (optional)
  • Mayo
  • sale


    1. To make the chicken salad, begin by chopping the meat with a knife: the pieces obtained do not have to be all the same size. Wash and dry the celery before removing any filaments and cutting it into small pieces.
    2. The lettuce leaves should be washed and dried. In a large salad bowl, combine the chicken and celery.
    3. Cut the lettuce into strips and combine it with the celery in a mixing bowl. Make mayonnaise with a single egg, following the basic recipe and keeping it liquid. Spread it on top of the salad.
    4. Mix in the black olives and capers, if using, and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve your chicken salad immediately.
