  • 1 lb chicken breasts shredded or diced
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 3 tbsp pickled jalapenos optional
  • 1 scallion
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup peas and carrots
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Trim and remove any excess fat from the chicken and then place it in a pot with water and salt. Cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked through. Once the chicken is done cooking, shred it using two forks or dice it.
  • Peel and chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Place the potatoes in a pot with cold water, salt, and 1 tsp vinegar. Cook the potatoes until tender. This should take about 15-20 minutes. Once the potatoes are done cooking, drain them and set them aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the mayo, sour cream, and dijon mustard. Add the scallions, pickled jalapenos, corn, peas, carrots, potatoes, and chicken. Mix well. Season generously with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
