A better name for this spicy chicken salad would be ‘the greatest, absolutely fantastic, totally different, outrageously superb chicken salad’, but that’s too long for a blog post title. This is not your typical chicken salad. Sure, it’s mayonnaise-creamy, but there are special, unexpected ingredients in there too. Like cheese (in a chicken salad????! Seriously, who does that?). And bell pepper (why didn’t I think of that? It adds great crunch and flavor). And tart sour cream???! And my favorite flavors, spicy smoky chipotle and cooling creamy avocado. What a great and definitely different chicken salad this is!

A Seriously Good Twist On A Classic

I wouldn’t change a thing about this spicy chicken salad. If you aren’t going to use the entire batch at once, I do recommend that you only mix in avocado with what you will use. After all, the avocado isn’t going to keep for long. You’re better off mixing it in when you need it.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.

Got leftover fried chicken? Also try my fried chicken salad and one of our favorites, Big Daddy’s Kick’n Chicken Salad.
