Good morning! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and that your week is going well so far. I had a great weekend, we went on a road trip, spent time at the beach, I read a couple of the books (which I told you about on Friday) and we relaxed.
My husband made a batch of smoked chicken salad with apples and cranberries yesterday and it was delicious.
Typically people add grapes and pecans to their chicken salad, this recipe is a littler different. It came to us by way of a friend who has a bbq restaurant in Austin, Texas. He serves this chicken salad at his restaurant and I love it. That said, the recipe is not exact because he makes in it much larger quantities and it is a little hard to break it down into a family size recipe. I have listed the ingredients and the quantities that we use at home, but you can tweak around with it to suit your taste, add more mayonnaise if you like or cranberries and apples which is what I do.
Smoked Chicken Salad with Apples and Cranberries
1/2 cup Dukes Mayonnaise, add more to taste
1/8 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/8 teaspoon pepper or to taste
2 cups smoked chicken breast chopped or shredded
1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped green apple
1/8 up chopped onion
The juice from a small lime
In a bowl mix together the mayonnaise, the salt and pepper. Then add the chicken, cranberry, apples, onion and the squeeze of limes juice. Mix well.
Serve on fresh bread, cracker or on greens. I like to eat it with cranberry, nut bread or on a salad.
Have a great day!
