Per the Chicken Salad Chick website, the “secret recipe” is made up of “a lotta chicken, barely enough mayonnaise to mention, 1/2 cup of everything your Mama taught you in the kitchen, 1 cup of love for the people you are serving and a dash of Southern style.”
The Bradenton store doesn’t have a menu on its chickensaladchick.com webpage yet, but the Tampa menu gives a preview of what Bradenton residents may find if they pay Chicken Salad Chick a visit on Sept. 7.
