Jason’s Deli Chicken Salad Recipe

Recipe Overview

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Course: Salad
  • Cuisine: American
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Calories Per Serving: 350

Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to whip up this delicious Jason’s Deli Chicken Salad:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded or diced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)
  • Lettuce leaves or your favorite bread, for serving

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare The Chicken

You can quickly prepare some chicken if you do not already have any cooked. I like to poach my chicken breasts in simmering water for about 10 minutes or until fully cooked. Let the chicken cool and then shred or dice it.

Step 2: Make The Dressing

Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, honey, salt, and black pepper in a sizable mixing basin. Blend the mixture until it is well-combined and smooth.

This dressing is the heart of our Jason’s Deli Chicken Salad Recipe, giving it that creamy and tangy flavor we love.

Step 3: Combine The Ingredients

Add the shredded chicken, celery, red onion, green bell pepper, sweet pickle relish, and sliced almonds (if using) to the bowl with the dressing.

Stir everything together until the chicken and vegetables are well coated with the dressing.

Step 4: Chill The Salad

For the best flavor, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill the chicken salad in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.

Step 5: Serve And Enjoy

Serve your Jason’s Deli Chicken Salad on a bed of fresh lettuce leaves or use it as a filling for sandwiches with your favorite bread. I love it both ways!

Tips And Variations

  • Make it Healthier: For a lighter version, you can use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and reduce the amount of mayonnaise.
  • Add Some Crunch: If you like a bit more crunch in your chicken salad, try adding chopped apples or grapes.
  • Spice It Up: For a little kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or some diced jalapeños.
  • Storage: This chicken salad keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Just be sure to keep it sealed up in a container.

Serving Suggestions

  • Salad plate: Serve it on a bed of mixed greens with a side of fresh fruit for a light meal.
