  • 4 cups cooked chicken shredded (I like to use rotisserie chicken)
  • 8 slices bacon chopped
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 4 celery stalks diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt I use pink Himalayan 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Serving suggestions: Bread gluten free bread, crackers, lettuce leaves, salad


  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crispy to make bacon crumbles, about 8 minutes. Place cooked bacon crumbles on a large plat lined with a few paper towels and blot away any residual bacon grease.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, salt and pepper until combined. Add the cooked shredded chicken, shallots, diced celery, parmesan cheese, and bacon. Mix to combine until chicken is coated with the sour cream and mayonnaise dressing.
  3. Serve on a bed of lettuce, as a sandwich, with crackers, or as a lettuce wrap.
