Spooky Brain Chicken Salad, An Easy And Healthy Alternative

Spooky Brain Chicken Salad is not only a fun recipe that the kids can help you make, but it is tasty too! Your Halloween party guests will ooh and ahh over this authentic looking brain!

Let Victoria Paikin, From Recipe Lion, show You How To Make This Easy Recipe:


  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Spatula or Spoonula
  • Small Paring Knife
  • Serving Platter

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded
  • 1 pound boiled potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 pound pound carrots, cubed
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, finely diced
  • 1 celery stick, finely diced


  • 1/2 cup garlic mayonnaise (make your own by adding a finely minced garlic clove to a 1/2 cup of mayo)
  • 1 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp prepared horseradish
  • salt and pepper


  • 1 pound green grapes, cut in half lengthwise
  • Ketchup (as desired)


Mix garlic mayonnaise,  ketchup, horseradish and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl with spatula or spoonula for the dressing. Use a lower fat mayo if you prefer. I personally like the full flavored regular mayonnaise from Kraft. Your preference may vary however.

Add the rest of the salad ingredients to the dressing and mix well.

Take a serving platter and form 1/2 ball shape out of salad.

Divide the salad to 2 hemispheres with your spatula.

Cover the entire surface with the halved grapes, if they don’t stick add a little more mayo and use like a glue.

Squirt around the edges with ketchup and squirt a little more in between the hemispheres of the brain so it will look like blood.

You can place a variety of crackers and cheese cubes near by for your guests as well.

Serve immediately or refrigerate for later when your guests arrive!

Yes, you will delight your guests this Halloween with this fun and simple Spooky Brain Chicken Salad recipe. There won’t be a morsel left over!
