Honey mustard chicken salad elevates traditional, mayonnaise based chicken salad with its flavor combinations. Sweet honey and sharp, savory dijon mustard make this chicken salad recipe anything but boring.


  • 23 cups of cooked chicken with no bones or skin (I prefer chicken breast)
  • 34 tbs mayonnaise
  • 34 tbs dijon mustard
  • 34 tbs honey
  • 1/2 red onion, rough chopped
  • 1/4 chopped walnuts (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Add the chicken and 1 tbs of mayo, 1 tbs of dijon, and 1 tbs of honey to a food processor. Pulse. Add in the additional wet ingredients a little at a time and repeat until your chicken salad reaches the desired moisture level. Add in the onion and pulse to chop and distribute. Fold in walnuts and stir in salt and pepper. Serve on salad greens or in a sandwich or wrap. Enjoy!
