My recipe of the day is for my copycat version of the Chicken Salad Chick Fancy Nancy Chicken Salad. I am sharing it as part of a group blogging session with Improv Cooking Challenge.

Each month the group members share a recipe with the same two ingredients in it. Then we see how many different recipes we come up with. This month we are sharing recipes that include chicken and nuts.

Fancy Nancy Chicken Salad

Bill has been asking me to make some more chicken salad because we love it. I decided to do a DIY of the Chick’s recipe since it includes apples, celery and grapes.

All very Autumn themed and a lot like a chicken Waldorf salad. We love Waldorf salad as well.

If  you have vegan friends, you can try switching out the chicken for something like plant based chicken or even jackfruit. There is plenty of Vegan mayo out there, but remember the usual types, like Duke’s, are not vegan.

And after Thanksgiving, this recipe will be great to use leftover roasted turkey in. One can never have too many ways to use up leftover bird!
