4-Ingredient Chicken Salad Recipe: The Creamiest Chicken Salad Ever

Chicken. Whipped cream cheese. Celery or green onion (or both!). Onion powder. That is it. Just four simple ingredients create the creamiest chicken salad you’ve ever eaten. It’s perfect stacked on lettuce or on your favorite sandwich bread.

You can add other ingredients to this easy chicken salad recipe. Garlic powder can be used in place of onion powder (or again, a combination). If you like grapes, apples, cherries, or other fruits in your chicken salad, toss some. Walnuts, pecans or almonds can provide some crunch. If you like a looser chicken salad, stir in a few tablespoons of mayonnaise.
