Yes. I made it for dinner today. It was delicious. It was very easy and simple to make. I fortunately had all the ingredients needed. I would make again. I’m already planning to take to a Easter Potluck Brunch. ❤
Really fantastic and simple salad
I substituted raspberry jam and apple cider vinegar for plum jam and lemon juice. A very nice pop of sweet and acid. Thanks for the recipe. It’s a keeper
Wow! Looking at the ingredients, I was skeptical. But this came together wonderfully! Made the recipe as written and was even able to find plum (Damson) preserves at my grocery. A keeper!
I subbed in orange marmalade. EXCELLENT!
Hi Gerald, great idea!
Amazing. Are used apricot preserves since that’s what I had and it was absolutely delicious. My go to chicken salad recipe from now on.
Absolutely delicious!! I was skeptical when I saw the dressing. Had never heard of adding preserves. Will definitely be serving this in the future. I used a rotisserie chicken and omitted olives since I did not have any on hand. Thank you so much for sharing!
I made it last night and placed it in the fridge overnight. Today it tasted delicious!
Delicious! I hate olives, so I left those out. And used sugar free strawberry jam to make it lower carb. At 5g net carb per serving, this is a keeper. Thanks!
Is this OK to use as a sandwich filling?
Hi, Diane! You can absolutely use this as a sandwich filling. I recommend it on soft burger buns or hoagie rolls! Enjoy!
Never tasted anything like this before! It was so delicious. I am not a fan of bell pepper or green olives but with everything mixed together, it was the best I’ve ever tasted. The plum preserves is a must!
I made this and it was delicious! I didn’t have green olives so I substituted dried, unsweetened cranberries instead… Everything else was according to the recipe. Truly delicious!
Your chicken salad recipe is the bomb. Thanks
Added cooked peas & corn, raisins &chopped walnuts for a killer recipe!
I dress my chicken salad with finely chopped onion and celery and I use russian dressing instead of mayonnaise….it’s delish!
I added your chicken salad to my Harmonic Convergence Bowl. Delicious! https://flic.kr/p/MLYGWE
I particularly liked the tip for the dressing. I used strawberry jam and even my son liked it.
The salad I prepared was quite different, though, making use of what I had around:
leftover roast chicken
green and red peppers
cooled boiled pasta
bacon (microwaved to a crisp)
I used Marzetti Slaw Dressing instead. It’s sweet & savory, similar to the directions in the recipe.
I didn’t have any jam, so I used mango chutney. Yum! It was the perfect complement since my chicken was grilled and was smokey.
This is the best chicken salad I’ve ever had! I used a grocery store roasted chicken for this and diced up the crunchy parts of the skin too.
