Bacon Gorgonzola Chicken Salad

Ok, so I'm not usually a fan of chicken salad. I don't know what it is about, but I just have never liked it. Alas, when I saw this recipe that had bacon AND gorgonzola in the title, I HAD to try it. It did not disappoint! I may be a chicken salad convert now... well, only if it includes bacon and gorgonzola.

Now, I made some alterations, mainly I didn't use celery because I can't stand it (it's a texture thing, you know), but other than that, everything's the same and it glorious!

Please do enjoy Bacon Gorgonzola Chicken Salad...


  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken breast - I got a roasted chicken from the deli at Safeway (shreds like a dream!)
  • 8 strips cooked crumbled bacon
  • 1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese (added a little more because I heart gorgonzola)
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped celery (didn't use)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup prepared blue cheese dressing
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt


Place all ingredients into a large bowl. Stir to combine. Taste and season with additional seasonings if needed. Serve with firm crackers or serve inside a soft roll.

I haven't had it on a roll yet, but I have had it on the amazing Garlic Butter Ritz Crackers and they work PERFECTLY together! P.S. Garlic Butter Ritz Crackers are the bees knees.
