This lovely chicken salad needs some good mayonnaise to tie all of the ingredients together – the crispy red onion, celery, and apple! If you’re following the Paleo diet, then you should make your own mayonnaise at home, with olive oil. And then everything will be ok.

How to Cook Easy Chicken Salad

  1. Cook the chicken: Arrange the chicken thighs in a large pot, in a single layer. Add the lemon slices and dill sprigs, then pour water over the chicken thighs, covering by at least 1-inch/2.5 cm. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Cut the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add them to a bowl.
  3. Add the diced celery, red onion, apple, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. Season with sea salt and pepper. Whisk until combined.
