really good! one of my favourite ways to use leftover chicken now. Used grape jelly since I didn’t have plum preserves and still tasted awesome. Many thanks
Love the heart healthy way to poach chicken and keep it flavorful. Used just enough of the dressing to moisten du to its fat content and flavored it with my own secret ingredient, Hoisin sauce. Thank you for this recipe and the carefu, helpful instructions.
Made it, used sugar free jam and light mayo since I am diabetic. Tasted great, family loved it.
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)
