Tangy Chicken Salad

Living in the south, I’ve grown up eating chicken salad.  It’s a staple in the summer, one which I’m very picky about, as most are laden with mayo (which we’ve already established I don’t do) and absolutely awful for your diet.  But I stewed a whole chicken in the crock pot last week in preparations for a soup I never made, so I had to figure out what to do with it.  I don’t know why I decided to put sun-dried tomatoes with it, but I’m very glad I did.  The result (with some other stuff) was a light and tangy chicken salad that made a fabulous sandwich on ciabatta bread.


  • 2 cups diced, cooked chicken
  • 1 oz soft goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons light Miracle Whip
  • 3 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 2 scallions, diced (greens only)
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • ciabatta rolls


  1. In a small bowl, mix the goat cheese and Miracle Whip until well combined.
  2. Mix the chicken and vegetables.
  3. Add the cheese and Miracle Whip mixture.
  4. Mix until well combined.
  5. Serve on ciabatta rolls.
