Homemade Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad.  I also love that you can enjoy it in so many ways!  I personally like to eat mine on a spinach wrap, or on a bed of some lettuce or fresh spinach.  But it’s also amazing on sandwiches, crackers, you choose! Here’s how to whip up your own batch!:


  • 1 cup mayo (I like to use Hellman’s Avocado Oil with a Hint of Lime Mayonnaise)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (You can just do one full cup of sour cream, but mixing the Greek yogurt makes it a little healthier)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 3 cooked chicken breasts, shredded or chopped, whichever you prefer!
  • Sprinkle of fresh parsley flakes to garnish


  1. In a large bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Once well combined fold in all of the other ingredients, and coat evenly.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.  I personally like to let it sit for about two hours so the flavor really sets in!
  3. Garnish with some fresh parsley flakes when ready to serve.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
