This creamy Cajun Chicken Salad gets a kick from a custom blend and crunch from crisp celery. It’s great in lettuce wraps or on rolls.
Chicken Salad is one of my favorite lunches. It’s hearty and filling while not being heavy. You know what I mean? It’s perfect for packing, for entertaining, for just snacking on while you read a book and eat it out of the bowl with a spoon.
Not that I would know anything about that.
This Cajun Chicken Salad, with only four ingredients, is a particular breeze to pull together. Make it even easier by cooking the chicken in the slow cooker. If you use frozen chicken tenders, they cook in a just a few hours and practically shred themselves when you take the tongs to them. I love to do that!
Serve this easy chicken salad in lettuce wraps or atop rolls. So yummy!
