  • 2 cups of chopped shredded chicken or I used all the meat from a whole Rotisserie chicken which is wonderful
  • ½ cup mayo
  • ½ sour cream
  • ½ cup of celery sliced thin
  • ¼ cup scallions sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic Powder
  • ½ cup of sliced almonds
  • ½ cup of all-natural dried cranberries or cherries


  • If you have a whole Rotisserie Chicken like I use, remove the meat from the chicken and put chop into small pieces. I use my food processor to do this and it is SO easy. Literally, put the pieces of chicken in and pulse for a count of 5.
  • If you have baked chicken breasts, use about 2 cups of it chopped either by hand or in your food processor.
  • Add all the other ingredients and mix well.


Nutritional information include light sour cream.
