It’s often said “you can’t please everyone.” Fortunately, that old adage doesn’t apply to this Chicken Salad recipe. This classic, Keto-Friendly, Primal recipe is extremely easy to customize: just add in the spices and mix-ins to make this lunchtime favorite your own. Try the original Chicken Salad with Primal Kitchen Mayo, or level up to Curry Chicken, or Chicken Fajita salad for extra bold flavor.

A creamy mix of mayo, chicken, Dijon Mustard, and a few veggies is perfect for sandwiches, salads, wraps, and lettuce cups. This salad will stay fresh for a few days, so it’s ideal for meal prepping or busy weeks. You can even purchase rotisserie chicken for an even lower-effort upgrade.
