Our Favorite Chicken Salad

Our Favorite Chicken Salad

Our favorite chicken salad has a few critical components: tender chicken, crunch, a little sweetness, and it needs to be easy to make. This recipe checks all the boxes. We have shared our basic recipe as well as a few suggestions for making it extra special. We highly recommend the toasted sesame oil — it adds a lovely umami flavor to the dressing. A little goes a long way, so only add a few dashes (not more than a 1/4 teaspoon).

When we have the time, we poach chicken breasts for this salad. Here’s our detailed recipe for how we poach chicken.

Makes about 8 (1/2) cup servings
