Orlando & The Freakshow

We were on the hunt to find the best chicken salad spots in Tampa! If there’s one thing we love most, it’s a delicious chicken salad. It’s a true southern dish that is usually passed down in families over the years. Whether you cook your own chicken breasts or use rotisserie chicken, mayonnaise is another main ingredient in the recipe. You can make it simple by adding salt and pepper or get a little festive and add other ingredients.

Here Are Tampa’s 9 Best Chicken Salad Spots:

Some people love to put in their favorite fruit like grapes and raisins. Others like to keep it savory but want a crunch by putting in some finely chopped celery. Either way, chicken salad is delicious anytime of the year. But nothing can beat a cold chicken sandwich on a hot day. There’s something special about the dish that makes it always satisfying and comforting. You can have a big scoop all by itself with crackers or make a yummy sandwich. Our personal favorite is scooping it on a fluffy croissant roll. Adding a little cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion is a fabulous way to make it complete.

Here’s our favorite recipe:

  • 2 chicken breasts from a rotisserie chicken (pull apart chicken)
  •  1/2 cup Duke’s Mayo (or more)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper

This is a simple recipe but is absolutely delicious every time! Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl and make sure every inch of the chicken is covered in mayo. Eat it right away or put it in the refrigerator to make it night and cold. You can make it fancy and add any other ingredients but we like it simple. Enjoy this wonderful recipe and share it with anyone who loves a good recipe. In the meantime, if you want to find restaurants in Tampa Bay with the best chicken salad scroll down.
