Chicken Salad with Grapes and Pecans

Chicken Salad with Grapes and Pecans: Jessi's Kitchen

There are probably a million recipes out there for Chicken Salad with Grapes and Pecans. I realize this but I really wanted to post MY version of chicken salad because not everyone makes it the same way. Also, I get asked a lot what I make for lunches and this is something I make a lot.

I think that chicken salad gets a bad rap for being super unhealthy and it definitely can be. If you have soy and sugar filled mayonnaise and then put it on a wheat filled croissant then you absolutely don’t need to think that is a healthy lunch. But…you can definitely make a healthier chicken salad with some good quality mayonnaise like Sir Kensington or Primal Kitchen and then serve it on top of lots of seasonal vegetables or in some gluten-free wraps.

I like to cook a bunch of chicken in my instant pot at the beginning of the week and then shred it up to use in salads, soups and other dishes. It ensures I get good meals during busy weeks and it is just SO good. This recipe can easily be doubled and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days!

Enjoy!
