A yummy chicken salad with a little spicy kick and made super simple in the slow cooker? Yes, please…sign me up! Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Salad delivers all of this 🙂

This makes a pretty good amount too, but it didn’t last long in my house at all.

It was the perfect lunch on toasted bagels.

But I think it was an even better snack on Town House crackers throughout the day.

Making the chicken in the slow cooker is easy, but also makes the chicken juicy.

And gives this chicken salad the perfect texture.

How to make Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Salad

Two pounds of chicken goes into the slow cooker first.

Then add 1/4 cup water, a diced onion, cajun seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.

After 4 to 5 hours on low it will look like this…

Shred it with two forks right in the slow cooker.

It shreds and pulls apart so easily!

Then drain any extra liquid that might still be in the slow cooker.

Once the chicken has come to room temperature add in more cajun seasoning, mayo, diced celery and green onions.

And (my favorite part) a few dashes of Tabasco sauce 🙂
