Quick & Easy

1. Shred the chicken


2. Dice the celery, red onion, red pepper, and green onion into small sized pieces. You want a fairly small, even dice so that they combine well into the chicken salad - you don’t want a giant chunk of raw onion in a bite.


3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, diced veggies, mayonnaise, paprika, green onion, cajun seasoning, mustard, relish, dill, and celery salt.


4. Stir to combine well.


5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. I like to make sure it has at least 30 minutes in the fridge before serving to allow the flavors to blend together well.


6. Serve with crackers or as a sandwich on toast or a croissant. Serve with hot suace on the side.
