This Rotisserie Chicken Salad Recipe wasn’t on my radar, until one day when I had some delicious chicken salad at a church potluck. After the potluck, I stopped off to pick up a rotisserie chicken and came straight home to try and recreate the recipe. Am I the only one that does that? Of course, I changed a few things to make is Sterner family-friendly. Read on to find out what I did!

Rotisserie Chicken Additions

I’ve mentioned in my other recipes that my family members really enjoy spicy food. To give the chicken salad a spicy kick, I added a few Serrano peppers. Adding some fresh dill seemed like a great idea too. After all, who doesn’t love dill, right? I didn’t have grapes, so I substituted one diced apple instead; I ended up liking it much more than grapes. My favorite apple variety is Pink Lady, but feel free to use whatever variety you like. Although I didn’t add walnuts initially, I have since. Walnuts give the salad a nice crunch. If you want the walnuts to retain their crunch, make sure not to add them until you’re ready to serve the chicken salad.

Rotisserie Chicken Salad Recipe Serving Suggestions

Of course, you can eat chicken salad straight out the container, but let’s expand our horizons a bit, shall we? For one thing, it goes great on whole wheat sesame cracker; talk about a filling snack! Another great way to serve it is in a croissant sandwich. Or, how about stuffing some home-made pita bread with the chicken salad for a satisfying lunch? Alternatively, you can do as my husband does, and eat it over a green salad. Sweet kale salad is a great salad choice.
