Barbecue Chicken Salad with Homemade Mayo

If there is one condiment you should try making at home – it’s mayonnaise. I will be the first to admit, condiments are cheap and easy to toss into the cart. Why waste your time making something that you can buy on sale for $0.98? But the thing about mayonnaise is – it’s easy. I mean super easy. And it takes less then 5 minutes to make. Have an extra egg yolk laying around? Bam, you’ve got mayonnaise.

For this recipe you will need a variety of chips and a random stray hat. 




Stick around, I have another use for that jar of mayo you have hanging out in your fridge later this week.


  1. Mmmm…this sounds perfect for summer. And bravo with the homemade mayo!!

  2. I need to try to make mayo, since I always am looking for a way to use our abundance of eggs!

  3. Sigh, you’re right!! I need to get on it!

  4. My mom used to make mayo all the time but I’ve never bothered to try, just for the reasons you give; it’s so cheap at the store. I love the thought of doing these kinds of things on my own though. So much better for the family. Many thanks for the reminder and the recipe!

    The sandwich; wow. I love that you use chicken thighs instead of the breast. Always my favorite cut of meat. It looks amazing.

  5. I love these photos! My husband would really love the chicken salad – but I’m betting it wouldn’t be too tasty after 2 weeks in the postal system. :P

  6. Oh, I LOVE homemade mayonnaise because you can alter the flavors and seasonings to suit your mood. I love to add chopped herbs, and sometimes I use lemon juice instead of vinegar.

  7. My dad would love this chicken salad with homemade mayo… chicken salad is his favorite. lovely photos, too! And I do have random stray hat so I should get on this recipe. ;)

  8. Awesome idea, and gorgeous shots. I love chicken salad, especially with homemade mayo!!

  9. I always feel like such a failure at life when people talk about the awesomeness of making things like mayo and taco seasoning at home. Life-1, Katrina-0

  10. I use artichoke hearts in my chicken salad to add some moistness the next day. I wonder if I used the homemade mayo if that would help also. I love it served on a croussaint with a fruit salad and cheese.
