This recipe guide reveals the secrets to making your own Arby’s Chicken Salad recipe, with tips and variations for personalizing it just to your liking. Love the chicken salad at Arby’s? Make this delectable copycat recipe anytime the want strikes, and you’ll never miss out again.

The number of copycat dishes that have come out of my kitchen in the last year has exploded. Our interest in figuring out how to replicate our favorite restaurant dishes at home has grown significantly. When my family sits down and knows precisely what they are eating, but from my kitchen, these meals are usually a tremendous hit.

I used to love the recipe for today’s copycat dish during my lunch breaks from work many years ago. It was a straightforward chicken salad sandwich that I could not get enough of, was so upset to see disappear off Arby’s menu and was thrilled to see it return. But thanks to my copycat Arby’s Pecan Chicken Salad, I can now satisfy that hunger whenever I feel like it.

Arby’s Chicken Salad Recipe

This Arby’s chicken salad is taken to a whole new level by the addition of pecans and apples, which contribute both flavor and crunch. Because of the inclusion of grapes, it is both savory and sweet. We like to eat it on croissants, but it also tastes great on sandwich bread, in a wrap, and inside a pita. It’s straightforward enough for a picnic or light supper yet elegant enough for bridal and baby showers.

Is Arby’s Pecan Chicken Salad Available?

It is now a seasonal dish that is only available in our region during the summer. But there’s no need to worry because you can now enjoy it whenever you want, 365 days a year, thanks to this simple, 20-minute recipe!

Is Arby’s Chicken Salad Healthy?

It certainly comes as no surprise that the chicken salad sandwich and/or wrap is one of the healthiest options on the menu given that the menu is full of sandwiches piled high with meat and others drenched with liquid cheese.
Making restaurant recipes at home is one of the finest things since you have control over the ingredients and may lighten them up if you like. For instance, Greek yogurt or salad dressing could be used in place of the mayonnaise in this dressing.
