Southern Style Chicken Salad

Southern Style Chicken Salad is a savory chicken salad family recipe, no fruit or nuts included.



  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, eggs, olives, celery, and mustard. Add mayonnaise to your preference, then season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  2. Serve on a toasted croissant with baby spinach (pictured), on crackers or with celery.
  3. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.


I use an Instant Pot pressure cooker to boil my chicken and eggs, which makes it a breeze.

For an easier time, use a hand mixer to shred your chicken.
