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.


  • .50 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • .50 teaspoon kosher salt

  • .50 teaspoon celery seeds

  • 3.50 cups shredded rotisserie chicken breast (12 oz.)

  • .50 cup roasted unsalted almonds, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon

  • ¼ cup sliced fresh chives, plus more for serving

  • 8 slices sourdough bread (1/2 in. thick), toasted

  • 3 small radishes, thinly sliced


  1. Whisk mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, honey, salt, and celery seeds in a large bowl. Add chicken, almonds, tarragon, and chives. Stir to combine.

  2. Divide chicken salad evenly among toast slices. Top with radishes and more chives.
