Tired of the same old chicken salad?

This Sazón Chicken Salad is here for you (and your same ol’ chicken salad blues). A bright orange delight- this chicken salad is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the palate. And while unique looking and exotic sounding- it could not be any easier to make.

Just grab your cooked chicken of choice (leftover rotisserie, baked chicken breast, canned chicken, poached chicken…dealer’s choice), a little mayo, some scallion, celery, and last, but certainly not least- some Sazón Goya seasoning. Mix well, and pile high on your favorite bread, rolls, or even serve it as lettuce wraps! Flavortown: Population you. This stuff is out of bounds! No- my Guy Fieri references cannot be tamed!

Sazón Chicken Salad

What is Sazón GOYA®? 

Sazón is essentially a seasoning salt (sold in small packets and large containers), and primarily used in Hispanic cooking. A delicious blend of spices, it includes: garlic powder, cilantro, paprika, cumin, achiote, saffron, coriander and peppers. It does contain MSG, so be aware if you are trying to avoid it.

Aside from this easy and flavorful Sazón Chicken Salad, I also like to season meat with the spice, as well as add it to fajitas, quesadillas and enchiladas for a burst of flavor. It’s a very versatile spice, and seems to bless everything it touches.

Sazón Chicken Salad: The best chicken salad you never had.

Never had day-glow orange chicken salad before? You are MISSING OUT!

This is not only one of my easiest recipes, it is also one I make constantly. I make it almost every week for my boyfriend’s lunches- we just love the stuff.

This chicken salad has a flavor profile all its own, thanks entirely to the magical little Goya spice packets. The Sazón blend of coriander, saffron, achiote, garlic and more give this easy lunch/brunch/dinner recipe a zesty, herbaliciousness that’s hard to even put your finger on- you just have to try it!
