How to Make Cold Chicken Salad


  1. Boil noodles. Rinse with cool water.
  2. Chop all ingredients and set aside. I have made this various ways when it comes to the chicken. You can boil a chicken breast, use a can of shredded chicken, chop 3 chicken tenders from the store or use rotisserie chicken. I usually use the rotisserie as then I get 2 dinners out of one chicken.
  3. Mix together the mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, and spices.
  4. Add to a large bowl and toss with the pasta, chicken, onion, and celery. Chill for 1 hour.
  5. Serve with a roll for a great lunch or dinner.
