About this Recipe

By: Morgana Jane

Wondering what to do with that little bit of leftover chicken? Here’s a tasty idea that makes a great lunch, snack, or appy! It’s simple, packed with protein, and delicious – and of course, takes mere minutes to prepare!


  • Chicken
  • Mayo
  • Fresh or Dry Tarragon
  • Salt & Pepper

This is a variable recipe. Use what you have on hand and make as much or little as you like!

Mix all ingredients together and make yourself a fine sandwich. It’s great on fresh toasted sourdough, a rice cake, and even a celery stick. You’ll find that this versatile mix also lands well atop a plate of mixed greens.


This little salad offers a great hit of protein at lunch or snack time, and the tarragon infuses it with excellent flavor as well as a smattering of Vitamins and Minerals, including A, C, B Complex, Calcium, Manganese, Iron, and  Potassium. Nothing but joy going on here!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1 – Chop, Chop!

Chop leftover chicken into smallish cubes and place in a bowl.

Step 2 – Additionally

Add a generous dollop of mayo, salt and pepper to taste, and fresh or dried tarragon. Go easy on the Tarragon – it likes to take over.  You can always add more, if you like, but once it’s in, it’s in!

Step 3 – Mix It Up!

Mix all ingredients until well combined. Taste for seasoning and adjust to your preference. Add more mayo if you find it too dry.

Step 4 – Mmmmmm!

Spread on a sandwich, rice cake, or cucumber rounds… Top a salad, or eat it right out of the bowl. Whatever your fancy – this salad never disappoints!
