Copycat Chicken Salad
TAKES: 20 min. MAKES: 2 servings
This copycat Chik-fil-A chicken salad recipe is incredibly easy to make, and your family will love it. It gets its signature taste from the sweet pickle relish. I like to use a thick crusty oat bread. —Julie Peterson, Crofton, MD

TEST KITCHEN TIPS
Double the chicken mixture for lunch during the week—use as a sandwich filling, serve over salad greens or dollop onto crackers.
If you’re cooking your own bird for this recipe, you’ll need roughly half a pound of raw chicken for every cup of cooked chopped breast meat.
