When it comes to cooking the chicken you have a bunch of options. Pan fry it, bake it, BBQ it, pressure cooker, whatever is easiest.

Heck, you can even use some rotisserie chicken in a pinch if you have some on hand or don’t want to cook your own chicken.

Whatever method you prefer just make sure that the internal temperature is 165°F.

Nut Allergy Warning

This recipe may contain peanuts or other nuts and seeds as one of its ingredients. Please take the appropriate precautions.

For the bread you can use whatever you prefer. I like to use buns but you can also use sliced bread or even croissants.

If you are trying to avoid carbs as much as you can you can even serve this chicken salad in a lettuce wrap or on a salad.
