Summer Chicken Salad

This summer chicken salad is a perfect recipe to be shared with friends or lunches for the week. It uses simple ingredients and can be stored for up to a week. Eat it alone, or own your favorite bread or wrap. Delicious!

Summertime is the perfect time for easy to mix chicken salads. It’s my go to on a hot sunny day. The best parts about recipes like this are that you can totally pack it up and take it to the beach or park for a picnic. ย I originally saw this recipeย on my favorite gal’s show, Ina Garten but decided it needed a few personal touches. Plus I didn’t have everything on hand (which is the best part of making a good recipe, you can make it your own with what you have)ย so I tweaked the recipe a bit to come up with what I have now!

  2. Chop your chicken breasts into small pieces, season with salt and pepper and add to the heated pan.
  3. Saute your chicken until it is full cooked.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, dice your celery in small bits, including the hearts and leaves, add to a bowl.
  5. Add the cooked chicken directly on the celery, letting the heat cook the celery to soften.

  7. Stir to combine, cover and refrigerator until completely cooled, 30 minutes to 1 hour.
