Sometimes chicken salad hits the spot! What could be easier than chicken salad with a dash of caraway for added flavor? Sometimes when I have the smoker going I toss some extra chicken or turkey on because I know there is some chicken salad in the future.

What makes this dish is the added extras from sweet fruit to assorted chopped veggies. The added flavor is backed by visual appeal. And, if you don't have any smoked chicken or turkey on hand feel free to substitute with broiled, baked, grilled, etc!

Loaded Smoked Chicken Salad

  • 2 cups cubed cooked & cooled smoked chicken, more if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 2 teaspoons parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallot
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, fine chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, fine chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots fine chopped
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1/2 plus cup mayo, add to your desired amount
  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds
  • Salt and pepper


Pull, chop or dice the chicken and mix with the remaining ingredients. Cover and chill before serving.
