Do you love chicken salad as much as I do? It’s incredibly versatile and often tastes better the day after it’s made. I call that food that waits for me! And food that waits is the very best kind.
Whether you enjoy it as a wrap or on a bed of fresh greens with some avocado or tomato, I think you’ll find that this “loaded” version of chicken salad hits the spot for a cold plate of warm flavors.
You can also use my new egg white wrap recipe to make an on-the-go lunch!
Last, while this recipe calls for canned chicken, you can use any cooked chicken in the same amounts.
Higher protein or higher fat? The version as written is made with Greek yogurt and only 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise for those of you who are focusing on higher protein meals. Use a Greek yogurt with minimal ingredients. I like to use 5% milkfat Fage.
To make this Keto Loaded Chicken Salad recipe higher fat, you can use 8 ounces of mayonnaise (total) and omit the Greek yogurt.

I just grilled a bunch of chicken. This is an excellent example of how I can modify it for a next day meal. Thank you Kristie for all your ideas.
This chicken salad was amazing. So good, so good!
Making it tomorrow!!!
Made this today. I make chicken salad all the time. Mine is good. Really good.
Your recipe is better. Family asked I make it again. Tomorrow.
Nice job, Kristie.
Used rotisserie chicken from Costco (had it on hand) and turned out great! Love this recipe!
Wonderful recipe! Just had this for lunch stuffed in celery.
Just made this and tried a bite. It is delicious! I will have some tomorrow for lunch on an egg white wrap.
if you had to guess how much bacon do you think you cooked to end up with 3 oz cooked?
Depends on how thick it is. Maybe fry 4-6 slices
This is absolutely delicious! I used finely chopped fresh onion instead of green onions. Thank you for this recipe.
Amazingly easy, full of flavor and all of my family wanted more. Thank you for sharing!!
It’s across the very top of the recipe on the right side. 🙂
Awesome! Non keto hubby added Frank,s Buffalo sauce! I also used leftover used rotisserie chicken.
