Tips on How to Make Chicken Salad


  • Great chicken salad begins with fresh, well seasoned, moist chicken
  • Leftover chicken is also good for chicken salad, but fresh chicken makes for the best flavor
  • Poaching chicken makes for very moist chicken salad
  • You can poach the chicken with a mix of spices so that you are seasoning as you cook it
  • There are many variations of dressing, but the key is fresh ingredients
  • If you have crispy ingredients like Chinese noodles or nuts, they should be added at the last minute so they don't get soggy
