The other day I posted this pic on Instagram and got a ton of feedback on it!! What is it you ask? The ingredients to my super yummy Chicken Salad of course!!
I think Chicken Salad is a perfect summer staple. I like to eat “lighter” foods during the summer so I don’t feel weighed down and yucky. I try and save my savory foods for winter…know what I mean? I am also (for some weird, unknown reason) totally against putting fruit in my chicken and tuna salads. Or any salads really. I don’t even like fruity dressings like Raspberry Vinaigrette. I know, I’m weird!
Anyway, I decided to jazz it up this time and bake my chicken instead of just boil it like usual. I rubbed it down with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil and baked it until it was done. My whole kitchen smelled delish. I just love the smell of garlic and onions…LOL!!
I like my chicken salad a little “crunchy” so I added a ton of celery and pecans to it. I finished it off with a touch of Miracle Whip (I like the tanginess of MW) and it was just perfection!!
Now I ate mine right out of the bowl but I also love to put in on a wrap with some lettuce and swiss cheese. YUM!!
How do you eat your chicken salad? By itself? Do you add any fruits or different ingredients?
