“Chicken salad is comfort food. It can be dressed up for company, made in quantity for pot luck, or in small batches for sandwiches. This is my basic recipe.You can make many changes, i.e. take out the craisins and nuts and add sweet pickle relish and celery, substitute low fat or fat free mayo or plain yogurt for the mayonnaise, put in peanuts instead of pecans, etc. etc.”

Directions

  1. Place chicken in pot with water to cover, bring to a boil, then simmer for 45 minutes. Season boiling water with salt, chicken bouillon granules, and poultry seasoning to taste. When chicken is tender and flakes easily, drain and chop, either by hand or with food processor.
  2. Chop hard boiled eggs.
  3. Add eggs, craisins, pecans, mayonnaise, and seasonings and mix thoroughly. Tastes best if it cools thoroughly overnight.
