My favorite recipe blogger, Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen, is here with a GREAT Chicken Salad Recipe! Check it out!! She writes:
Oooooo Ladies, we love a good Chicken Salad, don’t we?! It is just such a treat when this dish is served. Why? Because typically it takes a bit of time to make, is expensive, and yes…most times is deeeelicious (if you have a good recipe of course). Because this recipe calls for an already roasted chicken (which at my store is $5), it reduces the time and price it takes to make this delicious salad! Sound good? It is… The mixture of sour cream, mayo and Marzetti’s Slaw Dressing makes the texture lighter, the grapes add sweetness and the nuts add a crunch. A mixture of utter yumminess. Feel free to be adventurous with your sweet/savory items and different ways to add texture. Beware, make this just once, and everyone will ask you how to make “That” Chicken Salad!!!! Enjoy!
Chicken, pecans, celery, onion, mayo, sour cream, grapes, Marzetti Slaw mix.
Pound Pecan Halves
Place it all in a bowl.
Slice white meat off of chicken (you may add the dark meat if you like!)
Cut into bite sized chunks
I typically save the legs for the children for lunch the next day.
Add all wet ingredients.
And serve! (This chicken salad wishes it was on a croissant, but I didn’t have one! lol still YUMMY!)
“That” Chicken Salad
1 Roaster Chicken
1 cup quartered grapes
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2/3 cup Marzetti’s Slaw Dressing
2/3 cup sour cream
(you may change fruit to apples, pineapples, or red grapes. You also may use water chestnuts and Chinese noodles in place of nuts)
Pull chicken off of breast and dice. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Serve on lettuce, croissants, or bread…also very pretty in phyllo cups!
Love to you, Janelle
