Roasted Chicken Salad with Whole Grain Mustard and Fresh Thyme

Roasted Chicken Salad with Whole Grain Mustard and Fresh Thyme

chicken saladAuthor note: This chicken salad has become a staple in our household. The whole-grain mustard and fresh thyme is a nice change from the typical mayonnaise based chicken salad. Chopped kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes or artichokes would be nice additions to the salad. This recipe has been adapted from a chicken salad recipe from Food52’s Amanda Hesser.

4 cups roasted chicken, cut into bite sized chunks (click here for roasted chicken recipe)

½ cup red onion, diced

2 teaspoons fresh thyme

2 tablespoons whole grain mustard

1/3 cup toasted pine nuts (toasted optional)

1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  1. Combine all the ingredients and stir to combine. Serve on crusty bread or by itself.
