Chicken and pea salad

Molly Stingley


This is a great salad to eat on hot days of summer. It came about because I needed something for a picnic but I didn't want to bring two different salads. We love chicken salad and we love pea salad so I thought why not put them together. It is nice alone or served on top of fresh salad greens. I have also done a veggie chicken salad where I added frozen carrots and fresh zucchini chopped to it. The recipe is very versatile and can be changed to suit your taste and health preferences . It serves a large crowd and paired with fresh fruit plate it makes a whole meal.

How to Make Chicken and pea salad


  1. Cook bacon crisp. Drain off grease and crumble.
  2. De-bone and chop up the chicken. Put chicken in large bowl. You will want on big enough to stir without spilling.
  3. Put all the ingredients all together in a bowl and stir. Best if left to set in fridge for a couple hours so that the flavors combine. But you don't have to.
