How to Make Rotisserie Chicken Salad
Making this salad couldn’t be easier. And this is a great make-ahead dish which seems to taste even better the next day!
Firstly, make the dressing. I like to make the dressing in the bottom of the bowl I use to make the salad. Simply, whisk together the greek yogurt, mayo, dijon mustard, lemon juice, and seasonings.
Next, add in the ingredients for the chicken salad. In this rotisserie chicken salad recipe I like to use:
- Diced Rotisserie Chicken
- Chopped celery
- Halved seedless red grapes
- Peel and cored diced apple
- Diced red onion
You can use all of these ingredients or leave out or substitute as you wish. Simply toss all of the ingredients with the dressing in a large bowl.
If you don’t have leftover rotisserie chicken, you can always use any leftover chicken you have. Or make from scratch using about two large chicken breasts. Simply bake or boil until cooked through.
You can store rotisserie chicken salad in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. This is a great make ahead recipe that lets you have a delicious and healthy sandwich spread or cracker spread anytime.

Do you have any tips on how to make this dairy free? In my area the only DF yogurt they offer is flavored. Would DF milk work instead?
Hi Lauryn. Milk would make the salad too runny. If you can’t find yogurt, you can do a bit of mayo or just toss with some olive oil. Let me know how it works out for you.
