Hey guys!  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  Welcome back!  As you know it’s mmmMonday!  I think that we might have talked about a chicken salad recipe before.  This one is just a tad different and something to be filed back that you will pull out…quite often!


Our pastor’s wife introduced me to this type of chicken salad years ago.  She is a whiz in the kitchen and I am very thankful for that.  Down through  the years she has been one of the “moms” that I have interrogated in the culinary department.  You know…when you are trying to make something…and you dial them up…and ask all of the ins and outs?  These gals were foodies before we ever knew what a foodie was.  They were just trying to feed their families the good stuff.

So without further ado….


Sister T.’s Chicken Salad

(This may or may not have been tweaked…by me…but this is the jist.  Also..I am not putting measurements…and I will explain that in a minute.)

chicken, cooked, cooled and diced

grapes, sliced

celery, chopped

onion, diced

pecans, chopped


seasoned salt

garlic powder

freshly cracked pepper

Directions:  Mix all ingredients in large bowl….stir and serve on rolls or with crackers. (Chilling and making a day ahead…is wonderful.  The flavors meld and make it yumalicious!)

Okay…I know that seems lacking…but this is the reason why.  You can make this in small batches or large.  You can use a whole, boiled chicken, deboned, or you can use boneless, skinless, chicken breasts.  Whatever you use…just eyeball it and add as much or as little as you want.  Also…for the seasonings…do the same.  Give it a few dashes of seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper…and then taste.  😉 (A bunch.)


I hope that you have a wonderful mmmMonday! Dirt Roaders.  May the love of God…come down in your little (or big) kitchen and inspire you to feed your family…the good stuff.



p.s. A big “thank you” to Adrianne and Amber for letting me photograph their sandwiches while they were partying.  😉
