Yes, I know. It’s a huge claim. It’s true for our home though. I think that I have made the best chicken salad that has ever graced our bread. I am not kidding you. So I had to share it with my precious Dirt Roaders on this mmmMonday!
You guys know, by now, that I am one of those cooks who add a little of this and a little of that. Actually…whether it’s cooking or home decor…I’m known to spend quite a bit of time “tweaking.” (No..no…nothing drug related…just fine tuning.) 🙂
One of these days I will post a recipe for you that is actually a full-blown meal. Lately though…I’ve been having fun with the simple things. (I want to make your life easier…not more complicated.) I hope that you enjoy this mmmMonday! recipe…from the tippy tip of your taste buds, down to your belly.
Best Chicken Salad Yet
2 cans of chicken (You can also used cooked and shredded boneless skinless chicken breasts.)
2 stalks of celery
1 small apple
1/2 of an onion
1/2 c. of raisins
1/4 c. chopped parsley (fresh)
1/2 c. light mayo
a tad of Lawry’s season salt
freshly cracked pepper and salt, to taste
chopped almonds or pecans (optional)
The big sha-bang in this recipe is the parsley. I have never added it before but it was definitely the star of the show. Parsley just brightens it up so much. The raisins were a new touch too and they were heavenly. (I usually use grapes.) This recipe is a keeper for our home. I hope that you all enjoy it too.
Happy mmmMonday! Dirt Roaders. Go forth….and feed those faces. 😉
p.s. Don’t be afraid to “tweak” this recipe yourself. Adjust everything to your taste. You will love me for this one. 😉
