Betty's Chicken Salad

Recipe by  

"Great on a warm summer day and kid-approved! Great for wedding and baby showers. Some planning ahead with having to cook the chicken, noodles, and eggs but definitely worth the extra effort!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I cook the chicken in a deep casserole dish 1/2 filled with water. Put in chicken, cover and cook for about an hour. Cut chicken breast in 1/2 to make sure it's not pink. Serve with rolls, jello and pickles.

I used Trader Joe's Just Chicken, used full-fat mayo, and didn't blanch the almonds--the only changes I made. The main thing I didn't care for is that it turned out all the same color. I wanted to add something like red bell pepper or tomatoes or something with color. Honey Mustard II from this site would have been a good mix with this. When I actually ate it, I added Tajin and more salt and pepper. It resembles other recipes here for chicken salad that add more spices. This is a nice beginning, and I liked that the submitter mentioned how easy it would be to make everything ahead of time, especially for a major event. It sounds like I didn't care for this, but it certainly did make me a nice dinner. Thanks, jsmisek!
