January 12, 2023 – Chicken Salad Chick Fancy Nancy Chicken Salad Copycat Recipe

It has been a month since Chicken Salad Chick opened near us and I am a big fan. I’m slowly working my way through their flavors. My favorites so far, are Fancy Nancy and Patti Thai-riffic.

What happens when I get a craving for my favorite Chick and I can’t get my hands on any? Kathy get’s sad. So, have been on the lookout for a copycat recipe. I found one and have tweaked it to my liking. I served this on low carb sun-dried tomato wraps.

Faux Fancy Nancy Chicken Salad


  • 2 cups of chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 1 fuji apple, chopped
  • 1/2 C seedless red grapes, cut up
  • 2 TBSP chopped pecans
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp ranch seasoning

Add all ingredients into a bowl and stir until well combined.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to serving.

Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Makes 4 servings

This was spot on. I did not put celery in because I am not a fan. You can add finely chopped celery like Chicken Salad Chick does if you would like.

You can experiment with lower calorie substitutes for the mayonnaise. I used Dukes, which I love. If you want to lighten it up but keep that mayo taste, use half mayo and half fat free greek yogurt.

I hope you get a chance to try this recipe. I made enough to supply me with lunches all week. This made my day.

Thanks for reading.
