Recipe: Keto Chicken Salad


For the Salad:
  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced or shredded
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For the Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream (full-fat)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Chicken:
  • Start with cooked chicken breast. You can use leftover chicken or cook it fresh. Poaching, baking, or grilling are all good methods. Once cooked, dice or shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
2. Chop the Vegetables:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced celery, chopped red onion, diced red bell pepper, and chopped fresh parsley.
3. Make the Dressing:
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Mix until the dressing is smooth and well combined.
  • Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning to your preference.
4. Combine and Toss:
  • Add the diced or shredded chicken to the bowl of chopped vegetables.
  • Pour the dressing over the chicken and vegetables.
  • Gently toss everything together until the chicken and vegetables are evenly coated with the dressing.
5. Chill and Serve:
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate the keto chicken salad for at least 30 minutes before serving. Chilling allows the flavors to meld together.
