Norma's Chicken Salad Recipe

This is a sacred post.

For all my girls back in (or away from) Pensacola...

Norma Murray is a fabulous chef and owns three (well, now two...) local restaurants called "Norma's." Simply put, it's the place you go to with your grandma and mom for lunch to catch up. Chicken salad, fruit salad, gumbo, bread pudding - traditional Southern fare. Her cookbook, "As Always" is available for sale here.

And here is her AMAZING recipe

Norma’s Chicken Salad Must (be refrigerated)

Mix dressing ingredients in a large bowl.

¼ c. lemon juice

¼ c. chicken base (comes in a jar, by the soup/boullion)

½ gallon mayo


8 c. chopped chicken

2 c. diced celery

Serve over field greens

Sprinkle with toasted almonds

You can also make this a hot dish by adding to the recipe ½ c. chopped onions, ½ c toasted almonds. Spread in a 8x10 pan. Combine 2 c. crushed potato chips with 1 c. cheddar. Sprinkle on top. Bake 350 for 25 min. Feeds 10-12.
