Need an easy weekday lunch idea?

Try making some creamy Walnut Chicken Salad using a combination of fresh and dried herbs plus walnuts and celery for a crunchy texture. This meal is both yummy and convenient, as it uses canned chicken breast meat from your pantry!

Whenever we go on a picnic, camping, or on a road trip I usually make a batch of this Walnut Chicken Salad to put in a cooler and take with us. It’s perfect for putting together some quick wraps or sandwiches while our family is on the go.

Hip tips for making these Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwiches:

  • I love that chicken salad is such a versatile meal idea! You can definitely customize this recipe with so many different add-ins. Try dried fruits like raisins, cranberries, red grapes, or chopped apple if you’d enjoy a touch of sweetness in your sandwich.
  • This recipe works with any type of chicken – leftover chicken, store-bought rotisserie chicken, or canned chicken from your pantry. I always keep Costco’s canned chicken on hand for last-minute sandwiches, soups, and casseroles, and it works great in this recipe too!
  • Not a fan of mayo? Try using plain Greek yogurt instead!
  • This recipe calls for Herbes de Provence, which is one of my favorite spice blends to pair with poultry. I use it often when roasting a chicken or turkey or making homemade soups. It usually includes marjoram, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and lavender.

walnut chicken salad on lettuce boats
This Walnut Chicken Salad doesn’t have to be served inside sandwiches!

I love the idea of serving chicken salad on lettuce boats using Romaine lettuce. You could also serve it as a wrap, inside a pita pocket, inside large celery ribs, or on top of sturdy crackers or pita chips. Yum!

    I love grapes in mine ๐Ÿ™‚

    • PDX To OGG Mama

      On the topic of grapes, my family and I just tried “cotton candy grapes.” Yes, they taste like cotton candy (I think) upon first bite…I was told it’s because they are grown to have a higher sugar content.

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        I always try to look for those and haven’t seen them in my store yet! Yum

        • cindy

          Lina – I live in WI. My local Pick n Save and Costco carry the cotton candy grapes. Hth!

          • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

            Oh I will look at my Costco for sure! Thanks Cindy ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Tina S.

    Thanks! Looks delicious and I will definitely try this.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Tina!

    Looks delish Lina! This is almost I make mine, but w/out the sour cream. I’ll have to try it with next time.

    When I’m not in the mood for bread or crackers, I like to scoop out the seeds of a halved cucumber and use it for chicken & tuna salads!

    • Jennifer

      Brilliant!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Awesome! Love the cucumber idea ๐Ÿ‘
