Copycat Corner Bakery D.C. Chicken Salad

There is no one “best” chicken salad recipe. I’ve tried several dozen over the years, and I use about five of them as a staple go to recipe when I need chicken salad.

Recipe Notes

You can use a whole roasted chicken. Just de-bone the chicken and shred the meat. I've used store bought rotisserie chicken in a pinch.

You can substitute either British Salad Cream instead of mayonnaise if you prefer. An alternative, if you can stomach it, is Miracle Whip, which my mid-West in-laws go nuts over but frankly I cannot stomach the flavour of.
