Chicken Salad Recipe

Chicken Salad


  • 3 or 4 lean chicken breasts
  • about 1/4 medium onion sliced/chopped
  • about 1/4 medium red pepper sliced/chopped
  • 2-4 cloves of garlic sliced/chopped
  • about 3 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
  • about 3/4 cup low fat mayonnaise

  • Adjust all quantities to taste, especially when it comes to the relish an mayo. 
  • I've found the type of mayo used has almost no outcome on the flavor of the chicken salad, so just buy the kind with the lowest fat you can.
  • Do not use miracle whip for this! It will be far too sweet once the sweet pickle relish is added!
  • Keep refrigerated and serve cold!

How to make Chicken Salad

  1. Chop up the pepper, onion, and garlic into manageable pieces and put them in a food processor to blend into a paste.  Transfer paste to mixing bowl.
  2. Add relish and mayo to mixing bowl.
  3. Cut up the chicken breasts into strips, and cook on a George Foreman grill or some other method.
  4. Once chicken is cooked thoroughly, put it in the food processor to shred it into smaller pieces.
  5. Add shredded chicken to mixing bowl and mix all ingredients together.
  6. Taste and make sure it's to your liking, you may need to add more relish and/or mayo to get the desired thickness, creaminess, and sweetness.
Best served on a cracker like Triscuits or on bread.
