It was lunch time and I really needed to use some leftover store bought roasted chicken before it spoiled. I need to grocery shop and did not have much in the fridge, so I used what I had to make this chicken salad and it was so good, I'll definitely make it again. Fresh spinach is what makes it different.

How to Make Not Your Traditional Chicken Salad


  1. Just mix all ingredients and serve.
  2. You can use all the ingredients to fit the amounts to fit your individual taste buds. We like it rather medium dry, not swimming in mayo.
  3. I was out of the usual celery and had some spinach and pretty much nothing else in the fridge so it is what I used. It can be served in a sandwich or on lettuce, stuffed in a tomato or with chips or crackers. Enjoy!
