Chicken salad with crumbled blue cheese and crispy bacon is a delicious twist on a classic sandwich.


  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 10 ounces cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon



  1. In a non-stick skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.
  2. Cut the chicken into small pieces or shred it. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mayonnaise, parsley, blue cheese, and lemon juice. Give it a taste and season with additional salt, if needed.
  3. You can serve the chicken salad on bread or in a tortilla – layer on the bacon and enjoy! Or, you can use the filling to make lettuce wraps – just chop up the bacon and sprinkle it over the top.


You can use rotisserie chicken, shredded cooked chicken, or grilled chicken.
