  • 2 lbs Chicken breasts cooked and cubed (or any chicken pieces)
  • 4 stalks celery diced (about 1⅓ cups)
  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper


  • Add the boneless chicken breasts to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Set back to low temp and cover. Continue to cook for about 15-20 minutes. Internal temp should be about 165°F.
  • Drain the chicken and expedite the cooling by running cold water over it. When cool enough to handle, cut it up into small cubical pieces. Add it into a mixing bowl.
  • Dice up the remaining vegetables and add them and the remaining ingredients to the bowl with the chicken.
  • Mix thoroughly with a large spoon and serve. Can be just a salad with crackers or just put on bread as a sandwich.
