Doggone Good Chicken Salad & Deviled Eggs

Well of course any Southern picnic needs chicken salad — and deviled eggs! Adjust size of pieces depending on your pet, and if making for your kitties, be sure to finely chop/mince the ingredients to avoid any choking hazard. This can easily be scaled up to larger portions for bigger dogs.


  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken

  • 1 boiled egg, diced

  • ½ cup shredded carrot

  • ½ cup diced celery with tops

  • Minced parsley and/or cilantro


  • ½ cup plain yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • Dash garlic powder (no onion!)


  1. For dressing, whisk ingredients together and set aside.

  2. Combine chicken salad ingredients. Toss with dressing and serve.

  3. Optional ingredients your dog may love are sweet bell pepper, cheese, blueberries and grated apples.

  4. For deviled eggs, boil, peel and stuff eggs with the chicken salad. Just add the yolk from these eggs to your salad. Or combine chicken with mashed yolks from boiled eggs and the same dressing.

  5. Garnish with minced parsley.
