Deli-Style Chicken Salad

To prepare a delicious Deli-Style Chicken Salad, follow the recipe below:


  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced (you can use roasted or grilled chicken)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lettuce leaves or bread for serving (optional)


  1. Cook the Chicken: If you don’t have cooked chicken ready, you can cook chicken breasts or use rotisserie chicken. You can roast, grill, or poach the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Let the cooked chicken cool, then dice it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Prepare the Dressing: In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, honey, and lemon juice. Mix well until the dressing is smooth and well combined.
  3. Mix the Salad: In a large bowl, add the diced chicken, celery, red onion, chopped dill pickles, and fresh parsley. Gently toss the ingredients together.
  4. Add the Dressing: Pour the dressing over the chicken and vegetable mixture. Use a spatula or spoon to gently fold the dressing into the salad until everything is evenly coated.

  1. Season to Taste: Taste the chicken salad and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Adjust the flavors by adding more mustard, honey, or lemon juice if desired.
  2. Chill: Cover the chicken salad bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together. You can also chill it for several hours or overnight.
  3. Serve: When ready to serve, you can serve the Deli-Style Chicken Salad in a variety of ways. You can scoop it onto lettuce leaves to make lettuce wraps or spread it on your favorite bread to make sandwiches. It also goes well with crackers or as a topping for salads.

Enjoy your homemade Deli-Style Chicken Salad! It’s perfect for picnics, lunches, or a light dinner option.
