Enjoy a tasty and healthy Shredded Chicken Salad! A mix of tender high protein chicken breast, crunchy almonds, grapes, and fresh tarragon to pack it with flavor. Serve cold with sandwiches, crackers, or in lettuce cups for a low-carb meal!


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup mayonnaise 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves (can also use parsley)
  • 1 cup (about 2 stalks) diced celery
  • 1 cup green grapes, halved
  • ½ cup toasted slivered almonds


  1. Add the chicken breasts to the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Pour in chicken broth.
  2. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken from the slow cooker and shred with two forks or in a bowl with a hand mixer.
  3. Once chicken is slightly cooled, add the shredded chicken to a large bowl and add the mayonnaise, tarragon, celery, grapes and almonds. Toss gently until chicken is coated. Serve in lettuce cups, with crackers or in a sandwich.
