Arby’s Grilled Chicken and Pecan Salad

Arby’s Grilled Chicken and Pecan Salad is a new menu item at Arby’s. Arby’s is known for their hearty roast beef sandwiches, but they do so much more than roast beef. They make a delicious nut and fruit filled grilled chicken salad like no one else.

Many places skimp on the nuts when they go into a recipe, well, Arby’s knows how to make a chicken salad that is packed with all sorts of tasty ingredients. You can try one of their Market Fresh Grilled Chicken and Pecan Salad sandwiches at home.

You don’t need to limit yourself to just a sandwich with this chicken salad; you could put this in a large tortilla for a wrap. This chicken salad would go well in a submarine bun; I loved this with toasted sourdough bread. Honestly, this goes well only scooped out and placed on a salad.

If you don’t happen to have any grilled chicken around, you could use leftover chicken that you may have from a baked chicken. If you need to grill your chicken, I will grill up about 1 to 1 1/4 pounds for this recipe.

This recipe is very flexible, you could add a little more or a little less of any of these ingredients, and you will come up with a great tasting chicken salad sandwich.

While they do not toast their pecans, I think you could easily bring this salad to the next level by toasting the pecans in a skillet over medium-high heat just until they become fragrant. Allow the pecans to cool completely before preparing the chicken salad.

    I used to make this at Arby’s all through high school. It’s just mayo, apples, grapes celery, chicken, and pecans. Nothing else. Nothing fancy.

    I think this is a good recipe, and light, but I know from making my own chicken salad that Arby’s must use half sour cream, like I do. I can tell by the taste and the texture. There’s also a flavour that appears to be added, but I don’t know what. I just had one of their sandwiches last night and I think they’ve changed the recipe. Still tastes like half sour cream or Greek yogurt, but the extra flavor was gone.

      Nope Arby’s is just mayo, grapes, pecans, apples, celery, and chicken. The chicken is seasoned but nothing else goes into it. I was the chicken salad girl all through high school.
