VSG surgery My Costco Chicken Salad Recipe

??6.0 Weight is pretty much what it has been.

I was perusing the refrigerated aisles at Costco the other day when I happened upon chicken salad that they make in house out of their rotisserie chicken. I picked it up and was about to put it into my basket but when I laid my eyes on the price tag, I put it right back. It was like 10 something which is fine for something I can't make myself ( like that divine tortilla crusted tilapia) but not for something I can whip together in my kitchen for half of the price. So I picked up a rotisserie chicken and made up my mind that I was gonna make my own chicken salad.

1 Costco Rotisserie Chicken
3-4 stalks of celery; diced
1/4 of a small onion; minced
1 1/4 cups of full fat mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
10 sundried tomatoes; diced
8-10 packets of Truvia

Remove the meat from the entire chicken and cut  the meat into small pieces. When you're finished it place the meat and other ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well blended. It is easy, pretty fast to prepare, and you know exactly what's in it.

Keep in mind, this is MY recipe. We use full fat mayo in my house, and we always have. I've never jumped on the low fat train, but should you feel so inclined to use a lower fat option, go right ahead. I cannot guarantee deliciousness. In fact, I cannot guarantee that the chicken won't be so offended that the carcass won't get up and chase you around your house with a jar of the good shit in one hand and a butter knife in the other. I...just.....can't.

But I've got to get up and fix The Kid something for lunch and make some phone calls.



  1. that is really similar to my recipe. I love the comment about the chicken being offended btw. cracked me up.
    i add cut up grapes, and a 1/2 cup of sour cream. and i only use just a couple packs of truvia.

  2. I guess I can't eat it all at once, know, like just sit and shovel it in my sure...that might be "uncomfortable", you say? oh, i can take breaks. I'm TOO hungry right now and this sounds TOO delish. Thanks for sharing, sistah girl!

  3. Bahaha you kill me! I do basically the same thing (no low fat in this house) but I don't use any sweetner and I put some dill in there. I've not tried sundried tomatoes though, I do love them.

  4. @Deeds,I usually use a little less truvia but it wasn't sweet enough this go round. i like it a little less sweet than Miracle Whip.

    @Angel if you ever make it this way, I will whip up some just for you.

    @Anonymous I actually DO use dill in mine. I'm not sure how I forgot to add it in the recipe. lol. I'm gonna go back and edit this post. thanks!

  5. omg! i gotta tell you, the picture of that chicken up there is a little obscene. i had to avert my eyes! being a delicate flower and all that.

  6. Pray tell, what is truvia?

    1. Its a no calorie sweetener derived from stevia, a plant based sweetener, and its my favorite at the moment


I love feedback more than cake. Make my day!
