How to Make Smoked Chicken Salad

If you are going to start up the smoker you might as well smoke two chickens, right?

Pull the meat from the bones of the chicken.

In the bowl of a food processor add a mix of breast and thigh meat, pulse a few times until the meat is chopped fine.

We don’t like just using chicken breast meat only. A mixture of both dark and light meats yields much better flavor and moisture.

Measure 3 cups of chopped chicken into a large bowl. Add the 3/4 cup finely chopped celery. If desired add 2 or 3 diced green onions or about 1/2 cup diced red onion. My husband is not a fan so we omit onions.

In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, celery salt, dried dill, dried parsley, smoked paprika, and pepper.

Pour the dressing over the chicken and celery and stir to combine thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper to taste, but we find it perfect without additional seasoning.

Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. We usually like to let it refrigerate overnight for the best flavor.

Serve on a nice fluffy, slightly sweet brioche bread or a flaky, buttery croissant!
