Dunkin Donuts Chicken Salad

The Dunkin' Donuts chicken salad recipe is a basic mayonnaise-based chicken salad. The chicken salad, which is served on a croissant or in a wrap at the restaurant, is easy to recreate in the home kitchen.

Both the mayonnaise and Miracle Whip can be replaced with their light or lower fat versions to reduce the calories in the chicken salad. As prepared at the restaurant, the salad is 560 calories a serving, including a croissant.

Chicken Salad Ingredients

  • 4 cups diced poached white meat chicken
  • 1 stalk celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup prepared mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon plain bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Chicken Salad Recipe

  • In a mixing bowl, toss together the chicken and celery. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Miracle whip, vinegars, breadcrumbs, salt, sugar, and pepper to taste.
  • Add to the chicken and mix gently until combined.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

How to Poach Chicken Breasts

Poaching chicken keeps it moist, making it an ideal way to cook chicken that you plan to use for chicken salad.


  • Dunkin' Donuts chicken salad is amply dressed - if you prefer your chicken salad with more dressing, increase all dressing ingredients by half, and combine with the same amount of chicken.
  • Add halved grapes, chopped onion, and/or walnuts to vary the salad.
  • Dunkin' Donuts uses all white meat in their salad, but feel free to replace all or part of the white meat with dark meat if you prefer.
