  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 2 1/4 pounds cooked chicken, see Note)
  • 1 32- ounce carton chicken broth or stock
  • 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise (plus more to taste)
  • 2 cups finely diced celery
  • 3/4 cup finely minced sweet onion
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (Or use 2 teaspoons Everything Seasoning. See Note)
  • 1 1/2-2 teaspoons salt


  1. Cook the chicken: place the chicken breasts in a wide skillet and cover with chicken broth. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer; cover and cook about 20-25 minutes or until chicken breasts are cooked through and reach 160ยบ F internally. Remove from skillet but reserve broth.
  2. Alternately, use 2 1/4 pounds (36 ounces) cooked chicken with the skin removed.
  3. Shred the chicken using your selected method from Notes.
  4. Place all ingredients but chicken broth in a large bowl (mayonnaise, celery, sweet onion, salt, and black pepper) and stir together.
  5. Add chicken broth, 1 tablespoon at a time, to the mixture until the desired texture and creaminess is reached. I use about 4-6 tablespoons of chicken broth. Add more mayo to taste, if desired.
