I am borderline addicted to this chick-fil-a chicken salad recipe. This might be a copycat of the famous chick-fil-a, but this is equally good! To make this, all you need are a few simple ingredients that you might already have on hand. Simply mix everything and slather on grilled sandwiches or croissants. Add a piece of lettuce, and voila! You have the best copycat of the well-known chick-fill-a!
This chick-fil-a chicken salad is a summer staple. I enjoy making this whenever I am craving something light and fresh. Every bite is loaded with flavor. If you also love chick-fil-a like I do and are searching for a great recipe nearest to the original, then you have to give this copycat recipe a try very soon. I honestly cannot tell the difference!
For this recipe, I used cooked chicken. Did I mention that this recipe is excellent to use up any leftover cooked chicken? To make things a lot easier and quicker, you are welcome to use rotisserie chicken. I throw together a big batch, making sure that I have enough for everyone. This chick-fil-a chicken salad is one of the most requested during picnics, trips to the park, and potlucks. I also love this with some Saltine crackers for an easy and quick lunch or even snack.

2 c. cooked chicken breasts

How to make Copycat Chick-fil-a Chicken Salad
Step 1: Into tiny chunks, slice the cooked chicken and put them in a mixing bowl. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Step 2: To make a sandwich, spread butter on one side of each piece of bread. Place on the grill until lightly toasted. For the grilled sandwich, spread the chicken salad and top with a piece of lettuce. Serve and enjoy!
