My sweet Nanny taught me to make this easy chicken salad years ago. I’ve never tried it any other way because, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Also, many folks imagine me with a house nanny when I say “my Nanny.” She’s my Grandma on my Mom’s side. Anyone else call their Grandma, Nanny?
Sweet Nanny uses a food processor to grind up all her ingredients. So, you’ll need a food processor. I have had this cheap one from walmart for many years and it has served us well.
Now, this recipe is all to taste (Nanny knows best). I will give approximate measurements, but use this “recipe” as more of a guideline.
To make this simple recipe even easier, I put my chicken in the crockpot in the morning (on high for about 2 hours) and its ready to whip up by lunch. You will need the following:
I put each of these in the food processor one by one with the exceptions of the raisins.
I use a Tupperware Bowl to mix because we always have extra and I can store it in the same bowl I mix it in. I’m all about what’s easiest! After you’ve got all your ingredients in a bowl, add the mayonnaise and mix it together until well combined.
We also like to serve this easy chicken salad with croissants. Yum!
