How to Make Chicken Salad
This recipe calls for a homemade honey mustard marinade/dressing. The chicken should be marinated overnight for maximum flavor, so be sure to give yourself time! Once you have mastered the perfect Honey Mustard Chicken, the rest is all about the beauty of the other ingredients. Avocado, tomatoes, onion, corn, bacon, lettuce. While I happen to love this salad as-is, you can always add/change your favorite ingredients as well as change the amounts. I often serve this at big gatherings! Place all ingredients in the serving bowl and then wait to stir until ready to eat.
Pro tip: Don’t add the avocados until right before serving to keep them from browning prematurely.
Chicken Salad Recipe
Do you want to serve this as a sandwich? Omit the lettuce and chop the ingredients finer. You can then pour the honey mustard dressing over all of the ingredients and mix well. You can also omit the honey mustard and use a traditional chicken salad dressing of mayo, mustard, and lemon juice.
Whatever you do, this Honey Mustard Chicken salad is always a hit!
