I absolutely love this healthy chicken salad with grapes and tarragon. This chicken salad is packed with flavor and the grapes and tarragon are a fantastic addition. It’s a staple in our house and we have it every week! It’s perfect for lunch, dinner, and meal prep. We love to make a lot of this chicken salad so we can enjoy it throughout the week.
How To Make This Chicken Salad With Grapes and Tarragon
Start by washing and drying the celery. Then, chop up the celery into small pieces. Next, cut the green onions into small pieces. After that, add the chopped celery and green onions to a large bowl.
After that, add the canned chicken or chicken breast to the bowl with the chopped celery and green onions.
After that, cut your grapes in half and finely chop your tarragon. This chicken salad is delicious because of the amazing flavor the grapes and tarragon add! We always add extra grapes because they add so much flavor. Also, the tarragon is amazing in this salad because it adds amazing flavor and elevates the complexity of the dish. The tarragon adds so much to this chicken salad and you don’t want to leave it out!
Next, add the grapes and tarragon to the bowl. Make the sauce and add it to the bowl as well. Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients and enjoy!
A Few Notes & Tips
Freeze Your Tarragon
For this recipe, use fresh tarragon if you can. With the leftover tarragon, you can put it in an ice cube tray with a little bit of water and freeze it. This is great because no tarragon goes to waste and you can use it the next time you make this chicken salad or for another recipe that calls for tarragon. Keep in mind that you will need to add a little more tarragon if you freeze it because the flavor isn’t as strong as fresh tarragon.
The Three Special Ingredients For This Grape Chicken Salad
This chicken salad is packed with flavor from the grapes, tarragon, and lime juice. These ingredients elevate this healthy chicken salad and add amazing flavor. We love to double the number of grapes in this recipe because they are delicious and add great flavor, so feel free to add as many grapes as you want! Also, we prefer using red grapes in this recipe. The tarragon has great flavor and elevates the complexity of the dish, so you don’t want to leave it out. Lastly, the lime brightens up the sauce and adds amazing flavor as well. These three special ingredients make this chicken salad very flavorful!
What Kind Of Chicken Breast Should I Use In This Recipe?
This is such a versatile recipe and you can’t go wrong with any chicken breast you use. We like to use grilled chicken breast cut into cubes, rotisserie chicken breast, or canned chicken breast. Any type of cooked chicken breast will work perfectly in this recipe. You can’t go wrong, it is foolproof!
