Rock & Roll Chicken Salad is the way it was meant to be. This is the best chicken salad you’ll ever eat, and it’s still my most requested recipe! 



  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken breast, cubed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise ( I use Duke’s) ad
  • 1 Tbsp. finely minced onion
  • 4 oz. sliced almonds 
  • 1/2 cup red seedless grapes, halved
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh dill weed 
  • 1 dash garlic powder
  • fresh dill to garnish (optional)


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until everything is well blended.
  2. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Stir well before serving and garnish with fresh dill if desired.


After refrigerating, add more Duke’s mayonnaise (ad) to make it creamier.

Spread on sliced bread for a sandwich, scoop onto a bed of lettuce, or stuff into a croissant.

Dried dill weed may be substituted for fresh if desired.
