  • Cutting Board


  • 15 oz organic canned chicken 2 cups finely chopped leftover chicken
  • 3/4 cup Paleo Mayo See my "I Can't Believe it's Mayo" recipe
  • 1/2 cup Green Apple - finely cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced grapes optional but adds sugar to recipe


  • If using canned chicken get into bowl and use a fork to break apart or else you will have thick chunks of chicken
  • Add mayo, salt, and pepper. Mix really well with fork. A fork works best for this recipe. Add a little more mayo if desired.
  • Add in apple and pecans
  • Taste Test! This taste even better once chilled ;-)


Great salad when you want something light.  I highly recommend my homemade mayo recipe or this just doesn't taste the same!  I use green apples over red because of their tartness and because they have less fructose.  Eat by itself, over a spring salad, or my kids fave, chicken salad lettuce boats :-)
