Cajun Chicken Salad

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 Cups Packed Lunch

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!

You can make this salad up to 2 days in advance. If you’re packing it for sandwiches, store it in a dish separate from the bread or lettuce leaves in order to keep them from getting soggy.

Provided you use paleo mayonnaise, this dish is Whole30 compliant. 😉

  1. This is similar to my favorite chicken salad, only we add chopped apple and craisins instead of the cajun spice! My daughter spreads it on toast, I eat it with crackers. YUM!

    That sounds delicious! It made me remember a chicken salad recipe I created using the following (simple and really delish!):

    poached chicken tenders, chopped (not too finely)
    dried apricots, chopped
    walnut pieces
    celery
    thyme
    mayonnaise
    salt and pepper to taste
