Recipe Summary

15 mins
15 mins

Everyone needs a great recipe for a classic chicken salad, and this one should be yours. A tangy mayonnaise dressing binds the shredded rotisserie chicken together with a lineup of flavor all-stars: There's Dijon for sharp heat, apple cider vinegar for punch, celery seeds for savory depth, almonds for crunch, and fresh tarragon and chives for herbal balance. There's also a drizzle of honey mixed in, but if you're not into the savory-sweet thing, feel free to skip it. While rotisserie chicken is called for here, leftover roasted chicken or even poached chicken thighs would work, too.
