I love chicken salad in many variations and I know that other folks prefer theirs differently, but here is a recipe that my family and I enjoy and you may tweak it according to your preferences.
The great thing about chicken salad is that you may have it as a side dish, main meal, in a sandwich or a wrap. The variations also keep it interesting.
Are you ready to start cooking?
Let's get started shall we!
What you will need first is to have some already cooked chicken breast; I boiled mine, but you may cook yours differently, I do not recommend canned chicken for this recipe.
Unlike me, use a large bowl, mix in the mayonnaise, lemon juice, cider vinegar, mustard, salt, sugar and pepper. Stir well. (See recipe below.)
In another bowl, add your chopped cooked chicken, red apples, sliced or chopped almonds, walnuts, cranberry raisins, golden raisins and regular raisins. (This is a salad nut mix sold in supermarkets)
To your chicken bowl, add fresh chopped parsley. If you do not have fresh parsley on hand you may add dry parsley to your mayo mix instead.
You also have the option of adding celery.
Add the chicken mix to the mayo bowl.
Stir well to coat everything and chill for 2 to 4 hours.
Voila chicken salad!
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp real mustard
2 Tablespoon fresh parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp pepper
3/4 cup sliced almonds & walnuts
3/4 cup mixed raisins, (cranberries, golden and regular raisins)
1/2 cup chopped celery (optional)
1 cup red apples
3 cups cooked chicken, cut up.
We love this for snacking with crackers and my son loves this for lunch at school.
Remember, you may adjust this recipe to your liking.
