Olexa's Chicken Salad

Olexa's Chicken Salad - This is THE BEST chicken salad EVER!! SO good!!! Chicken, mayo, sour cream, celery, curry, salt, pepper, lemon juice, green onions and smoked almonds. Copycat recipe from the Birmingham, AL restaurant. I think this version is better than the original. Keeps for up to 5 days in the fridge.

One of our favorite lunch spots in Birmingham is a place called Olexa's. It is an amazing bakery with a super cute cafe inside. All of the food is great! Especially the Chicken Salad. I finally got around to recreating the chicken salad at home. Let me tell you - OMG! This was SO good! It might be better than the original! Serve this on a croissant, on top of a salad, with crackers or on toasted bread.

The secret ingredients in this chicken salad are curry and smoked almonds.  Don't skip either in this recipe! I didn't think that I liked curry, but I loved it in this chicken salad. I used half of a rotisserie chicken in this recipe. Rotisserie chicken is my go-to for cooked chicken in recipes. It has great flavor and is super convenient.

This chicken salad can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

  3. Hi Steph:
    How much raw chicken do you buy to yield 2.5 cups?

    1. I usually use about half of a rotisserie. If you are cooking raw chicken, about a pound of tenders or 2 breasts (depending on the size) should be enough.
