This is The Husband’s favorite Sunday lunch!  I love it because after being at church, I’m famished, and this is so fast to make.  This is also a great bare bones recipe.  If you’re into jazzing up your food there are a wide variety of veggies and other fixins you can add to this.

3 Ingredient Chicken Salad #Recipe
Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1 - 12 oz Can of Chicken Breast
  • approx. 3 Tbsp. French's Dijon with Chardonnay
  • 1/4 Cup Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing
  • About a handful of grapes halved or quartered


  • Mix everything together in a bowl and serve on bread or rolls.
  • With the exception of the can of chicken all amounts are variable according to your taste. Experiment with the amounts to find the taste you love. Also, I definitely recommend using the brands of dressing and mustard, if you can find them at your local grocer's. They are what give this chicken salad it's amazing taste!

Disclosure: I was sent a bottle of French’s mustard to use.  The recipe is entirely of my own making.

  1. Wow. This sounds really good and so simple. I'm thinking with the dressings you use, it's probably lighter than other chicken salads too?
    • I checked the dressing bottle, and I'm not sure that it is less fat than using mayo or another dressing. Apparently this dressing is fairly high in fat. 22% total fat with 5% from saturated fat per 2 tablespoons. I forgot to include that this recipe typically makes 4-5 store-bought sliced loaf bread sized sandwiches. (so it's not like you alone are ingesting the whole amount of dressing)

    This sounds easy and yummy. I like how creamy it is. When I make mine I boil the Chicken breast, let it cool and shred it. Add small pieces of onions and celery, half yogurt and half mayo, walnuts and golden raisins. You cut the calories with the yogurt and it tastes bettre than all mayo!
