What’s For Lunch? Easy, Delicious Chicken Salad

This Low FODMAP Chicken Salad with Cranberries & Pecans can be made with any kind of low FODMAP chicken you might have around: poached, grilled, roasted, your choice!

I like poached chicken breasts for their juicy tenderness.

Celery Can Be Low FODMAP

The celery is in a small enough portion to be low FODMAP, so don’t worry – just stick to the serving sizes and as always, assess your own tolerances.

Dried Cranberries Are Okay in Small Servings

The dried cranberries add sweetness and chewiness to our chicken salad, while the nuts add crunch. The tarragon, whether fresh or dried, adds a fabulous herbaceous touch. Don’t leave it out!

This variation of chicken salad is delicious in a sandwich, or as a salad with greens.

Makes: 6 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Author: Dédé Wilson

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (250 g) diced or shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup (113 g) mayonnaise
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon, or 1 tablespoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) dried cranberries, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lightly toasted pecans, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon scallions, green parts only

Preparation:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mayonnaise, celery, tarragon, mustard, and lemon juice, folding the ingredients together until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper, then fold in the dried cranberries, pecans and scallions. The salad is ready to serve, or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. We love this equally on low FODMAP sandwich bread or on a bed of lettuce.

If You Can Tolerate

Fructans:

  • If you passed the fructan onion challenge, consider adding 2 tablespoons of finely chopped white, yellow, or Vidalia onion to the chicken salad.
  • If you passed the fructan wheat challenge, you can use wheat bread to make a sandwich (using gluten-free and/or dairy-free bread if necessary).
