Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad. I think I have eaten it everyday this week. Not on bread, or crackers, just plain chicken salad on a plate, with a fork, and a side of grapes, accompanied by a large cup of iced coffee (also something I have been obsessing over after acquiring some dulce de leche, that stuff is magical).

I routinely go through strange phases where I will only eat one food until I get sick of it. A few weeks ago I ate only banana smoothies, followed by apples, and now chicken salad. I love this chicken salad (did I already mention that?) and being the kind person that I am, I have decided to share this wondrous recipe with the world. You're welcome. 


YIELD: 2-3 servings

TIME: 15 min
PREP: 15 min


1 13oz can of chicken

2 tablespoons Miracle Whip

2 tablespoons Mayonnaise

1/8 cup chopped grapes

2 tablespoons sunflower seeds


Shred chicken (that can be done by mashing it with a fork.) Mix in mayo, Miracle Whip, grapes, and sunflower seeds. Serve with bread, crackers, or without anything, because it tastes awesome by itself.

Store in refrigerator.


  1. The salad looks amazing! But sunflower seeds?? I have never ever heard of them in a chicken sale before. What do they contribute?

    1. A lot of chicken salad recipes contain cashews. However, I had no cashews so I subbed in sunflower seeds. They don't add a ton, just a light salty flavor and some crunch.
