  • Instant Pot


  • 2 cups poached chicken breasts cut into small cubes or shredded
  • 1 cup celery finely chopped, with leaves
  • 1/2 cup onion red, white, or scallions will do
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup red or green seedless grapes quartered
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Tarragon or more - use to your taste
  • 1 tbsp lemon
  • 1 tbsp fresh or dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans optional


  • Turn your Instant Pot to Saute. Add 2 cups of water. Boil the chicken until done - about 10 minutes depending on thickness.
  • Shred or dice it up the chicken. Can use rotisserie chicken or leftover turkey as well.
  • Dice the celery, onion, and grapes. Set aside.
  • Mix the mayo, lemon, and spices in a bowl.
  • Add the chicken and the diced veggies to the bowl. Mix well.
  • While it is better chilled, you can serve immediately.
  • Toast bread and add lettuce with the chicken salad. Or wrap it in lettuce leaves for a low carb option!
