How to Make Easy Chicken Salad

I absolutely love chicken salad. It’s nutritious and delicious. There’s so many different ingredients you can add to it. Watch the video down below to see my favorite way to make it.

Chicken Salad Recipe:

3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 to 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth

Himalayan salt and ground black pepper

Seasoning Mixture: 1/2 tsp of black pepper, 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of onion powder (can add up to 1 tsp of each depending on your tastes buds)

1 medium onion chopped

1 to 1 1/2 cups of chopped red seedless grapes

1 to 1 1/2 cups of finely chopped celery

1 cup of chopped pecans

3 tbsp of Mayonaise


Put cleaned chicken breasts in your instant pot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add chicken broth and then add the seasoning mixture. Cook for 17 minutes on Meat/Stew if chicken is thawed. (You can cook in a crock pot if you don’t have an instant pot.) Self release after the chicken is cooked.

Pull cooked chicken apart and add the other ingredients. You can add more or less of each ingredient depending on your what you like. Better served chilled.

You can serve on bread, crackers, romaine lettuce, or just eat it. Enjoy!
