Maggie Mae's Tropical Chicken Salad

This easy to make chicken salad has been an anchor on Maggie Mae's menu for almost 20 years. Maggie Mae's Tropical Chicken Salad is versatile and reasonably healthy.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Course Main Course, Salad
Cuisine American
Servings 6


  • 2.5 lbs chicken breast cooked, 1/4" cubed
  • 1 tbsp sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup canned pineapple chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp - 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup onions chopped fine
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp carrots shredded, chopped


  • Place all ingredients in medium mixing bowl. Gently mix.
  • Chill and serve on bed of lettuce surrounded with sliced strawberries and grapes.
  • Top with chopped walnuts (optional)


This is an excellent salad for sandwiches, topping a salad or just on a toasted English muffin. We recommend Maggie Mae's honey yogurt dressing for a salad.
NOTE - do not use fresh pineapple. The acid breaks down the ingredients and it will become watery.
