Chicken Salad Recipes

The fabulous 50's gave us so many great recipes, this chicken salad is one of them. This timeless classic chicken salad recipe is a staple from the 50s and the Ladies Who Lunched. Not dry, not filled with fruit salad...this is the real deal.

Back when they served chicken salad in perfectly cored tomatoes, presentation and taste were done to perfection. We've upped the game by serving it in butter croissants.

From shredding the chicken breast by hand, to adding just the right amount of mayo with hard boiled eggs...this recipe is worthy of the finest women's club menu offerings.
