Rotisserie Chicken Salad

Making Chicken Salad from a store bought Rotisserie Chicken is not only easy, the chicken is pre-seasoned and moist, and makes pulling this potluck favorite together really quickly.

I am sharing my personal recipe with you, but you can of course customize to your own preferences. For example, I don't add celery, as I don't prefer it, but you could certainly add some, (although you may want to adjust the other ingredients some).  Feel free to play around with it, but I have found the simpler the better.

Jan's Tip: Start with the lesser amount of mayonnaise and add more to your desired consistency, but do remember that the chicken will absorb some of the mayonnaise over time just a bit, so I tend to mix a bit more in to avoid having a "dry" chicken salad. 

This is great to take to a pot luck or serve for a brunch. I like to serve it with crescent rolls rather than regular buns, but I actually prefer to eat it without a bun.
