Today I’m sharing 20 Keto Chicken Salad Recipes, and this collection of cold chicken salads has some that are definitely favorites at my house. And if you buy a rotisserie chicken or use cut-up rotisserie chicken from a package, all these chicken salad recipes are going to be extra easy to get on the table.

And all of these salads are easy enough you can make them on a hot summer day when you don’t really want to cook. I’ve updated the post with some amazing Keto chicken salads I’ve made recently; I hope you enjoy trying at least a few of the tasty salads!

Tips for Tasty Keto Chicken Salad Recipes:

  1. If you shop at Costco, look for their already cooked-and cut-up packages of rotisserie chicken to make chicken salad prep even easier! I’m a huge fan of this product.
  2. If you have time, marinating the cut-up chicken in the dressing for 20-30 minutes before you stir the salad together will add flavor to chicken salads.
  3. Most every type of chicken salad can keep in the fridge for a few days, but for best flavor I like to have a little extra dressing to stir in to refresh the flavors when I’m eating the leftovers.
