Chicken Salad is the perfect easy lunch recipe because you can make up a big batch and store it in the refrigerator to eat all week. You can eat it as a salad with lettuce one day, and make a sandwich the next. However you eat it, you end up with easy, delicious lunches to pack all week long.

Just mix all of your ingredients together in a bowl, then store in an airtight container. Pile it on to a croissant for a super delicious sandwich, or use a tortilla or regular bread instead. This stuff is seriously so good, you might eat it all before it ever makes it on to a piece of bread!

Hey Frank. I've been an ambassador for Old El Paso for two years and am very open about it. Thanks for stopping by.
Dear, thank you for sharing this beauty : great ingredients, simple to make !
This was very easy and very tasty! I will make this again. I added homemade pinto beans. And just a squirt HOT sauce. BUT, this was great and filling.
THIS is what dreams are made of. Such a genius idea-- I cannot wait to try this out!!
