Klaire’s Favorite Homestead Chicken Salad

Remember when I told you that you would be seeing more recipes using our homestead chicken?

Well, here is one that Klaire is crazy about these days – hence the name, Klaire’s Favorite Homestead Chicken Salad!

This is one of those recipes that’s so simple, it’s really not even a “recipe” y’all.  What makes it even better?  It’s super fast to mix up & perfect for a quick lunch.  I like to make up a huge batch with our leftover, roasted chicken.  The roasted chicken is what adds even more tasty goodness to the salad.

Another tip for extra flavor – use BOTH white & dark meat!  In my opinion, too often, people turn their noses up at the dark meat.  If you do, you are missing out on loads of flavor!

With only 5 ingredients (& a dash of seasoning), you’ll be making this recipe in no time.

It’s delicious served alone, with lettuce, or wrapped up.  Klaire & I even like to scoop it up with fresh, crunchy celery sticks for a snack.

Here’s how I like to make Klaire’s Favorite Homestead Chicken Salad:


1 lb roasted chicken meat, chopped

1/2 small onion, finely chopped

1 stalk celery, chopped

1 medium Granny Smith apple, chopped

1/2 cup avocado oil mayonnaise (if I don’t have my own made up, I use THIS ONE)

1/2 tsp garlic granules (or powder if you don’t have granules on hand)

Salt to taste (Celtic Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan)

Pepper to taste


  1. After prepping & chopping ingredients, mix it all up till well combined.
  2. Eat right away or allow to set over night in fridge for even more flavor!

See? Simple & easy, right? Enjoy & be sure to let us know how you like it!

Klaire’s special tip – always keep an extra apple on hand for that extra crunch. 🙂

Also, looking ahead, y’all know how we are always adding to the homestead?  Exciting news… We are finishing up plans for our very own homestead orchard!! So, those apples in recipes like this that I’m still purchasing will be a thing of the past before long.  More details coming your way soon!


Till next time…
