The only way I make chicken salad these days.
Myself and a few of the ladies that I play golf with had a huge tournament coming up. We decided that we were going out to get some practice in. We did fairly well, but we were out there all morning. By the time we got done, we were so hungry. There were some specials going on at the clubhouse, but it wasn’t anything that anyone was really interested in. People started talking about just going home to eat. I wanted to continue talking about the upcoming games, so I invited everyone to my house for lunch.
I told them that I had some delicious chicken salad that I had whipped together early that morning, and it should be just about perfect. They agreed, and followed me home.
The chicken salad recipe from Group Recipes that I used was almost exactly like the one my Grandma used to make back in the day. That was when I first learned about chicken salad, and just how tasty it really is.
1 whole chicken breast, cooked and cubed
1 hardboiled egg, chopped
1⁄2 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
fresh chives or 1 green onion, snipped fine
Prepare whole chicken breast; grilled is tastier.
Cube and put in mixing bowl.
Mix in chopped hardboiled egg,celery, and green onions or chives.
Mix in mayonnaise and mustard.
Add salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
Chill and enjoy
