Quick  &  Easy Copycat recipe

A few years ago when our small town opened a Chicken Salad Chick restaurant, I was skeptical on how long they would remain open. I thought to myself, “how much chicken salad does this town really eat?” Apparently enough for them to remain open all this time. With that said, I tried them and was sold!

I fell in love with their Lemon Basil chicken salad and felt the need to recreate the recipe…so I began to deconstruct the flavors while noshing one day in the store. I could taste the fresh basil, the light lemon, delicately diced onions and celery, and the right amount of tangy mayonnaise. After I identified all the flavors, I went to work in the kitchen to devise the perfect blend to make the copycat version to eat at a fraction of the cost.

Here’s what you will need for this absolutely delicious copycat Lemon Basil Chicken Salad from Chicken Salad Chick:

In a separate bowl combine all wet ingredients: mayo, mustard & olive oil and whip together. Start to stir in onions and onion powder. Once all well blended, add in chicken until everything is well blended. Sample and add or adjust as needed. Serve with crackers, over a bed of butter lettuce or on a flaky croissant.

Bon Appétit!
