Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Season chicken evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and onion powder. Place in the prepared baking dish and cover tightly with foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until juices run clear and chicken shreds easily, about 1 hour 20 minutes; don’t overcook. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Remove from the oven, uncover, and let sit until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes. Reserve any accumulated chicken broth.

  • Prepare dressing while chicken cools. Combine 1 cup mayonnaise, sour cream, relish, green onions, parsley, Dijon, lemon juice, dill, and remaining salt and pepper in a large bowl; mix until well combined.

  • Break chicken into large pieces and place in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse 3 to 5 times to shred chicken to desired consistency.

  • Transfer chicken to a bowl. Add celery and pour dressing over top; toss to coat. If more moisture is desired, add reserved broth or more mayonnaise.

  • Cover and chill for at least 2 hours (or up to 2 days) before serving. Stir well before serving.
