  • 1 cooked rotisserie chicken *
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 ribs of celery diced
  • 1/2 small red onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries


  • Remove the meat from your rotisserie chicken and shred into bite size pieces.
  • In a large bowl, add your shredded chicken meat and remaining ingredients. Stir to incorporate, adding more mayonnaise as needed.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve over a bed of lettuce or on lightly toasted bread as a sandwich.


  • *1 rotisserie chicken can be substituted with 14-16 ounces of any cooked chicken meat.
  • Walnuts and cranberries are optional, and can be substituted with almonds, pistachios, pecans, raisins, fresh grapes, or diced apple.
