Recipe Week - Chicken Salad
Okay. This one isn't so much a 'recipe' post as a 'think of the possibilities' post. If you don't care for chicken salad, I'm not going to try and convince you otherwise. However, there are some things that you can do to change it up a bit and make it a whole new dish.
Here are my main ingredients: Canned Chicken*, Miracle Whip, chopped celery, salt (to taste), pepper (to taste) and a really good sprinkling of celery seed.
Now for the fun.....
Instead of putting chopped celery in, add some granny smith apple.
Grapes are a good substitute, too.
Ever eaten it in a lettuce leaf as a wrap? Yum!
Skip the bread or roll and eat it on crackers instead.
Like curry? A good sprinkling of curry on chicken salad definitely takes it to the next level!
Think outside the box the next time you whip up a bowl of chicken salad for a meal.
*Yes, this is the easy way out and I should make my own cooked chicken. However, my super powers only stretch so far. :)
