cubed, cooked chicken meat
1 1/2 cups
green onions, chopped
minced green bell pepper
ground black pepper to taste
Very good chicken salad and easily adaptable if you want to add in additional ingredients (halved grapes, toasted pecans, sunflower seeds...etc etc). Simple and tasty.
This was o.k. I followed the recipe exactly and had it the same day as well as the next day. It was better the day after...but a bit dry IMO. There are so many dry ingredients and such little dressing that you can barely coat it all. Way too much crunch. There were more crunchies (bell pepper, onion, celery, pecans) than there was chicken...and the chicken, unfortunately, took a backseat to the other ingredients. I have no paprika complaints but not sure what it did for the recipe. Maybe you could substitute onion powder for the green onions? And I'm going to skip the pecans, maybe go with slivered almonds next chicken salad recipe I try; also nix the bell pepper.
Using ideas from previous reviewers, I added several dashes of poultry seasoning and garlic powder to the mayo mixture. Instead of 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries, I used 1/2 cup dried cranberries, 1/2 cup dried cherries, and about 1 cup of halved seedless green grapes. Omitted the green bell pepper since I don't care for it. Outstanding!! Huge hit at the covered-dish party I brought it to. Hubby loved it also!! I don't believe it serves 12 as listed, unless you make small sandwiches. I served it on lettuce leaves and it perhaps served 6 to 8.
This is a wonderful chicken salad recipe. I was looking for something close to Arby's chicken salad and this was it. I omitted the green pepper and added chopped apples and sliced grapes. I highly recommend giving this recipe a shot. I'm glad I did!
I'm on a chicken salad binge.There are many great recipes for it on this side, but this one is almost perfect. It tends to be a little bland, but the addition of poultry seasoning, garlic powder to the mayo and some minced red onion makes it superb.Thanks Elaine.
I've made this twice now. It's good right on the same day it's made, however, it's excellent on day two or three. Give the flavors a chance to meld together. Beautiful on a croissant sandwich.
Really good! Love the craisins & blend of flavors. Used mayo/miracle whip combo. Used red bell pepper, because I had one. Used leftover rotisserie chicken (shredded). Toasted pecans. This is a great recipe. Don't leave anything out--everything adds to the overall flavor! Be brave! I was, & I was not disappointed. Neither was my family. Everyone stood around in the kitchen eating it on crackers! Will be making again!!!
This was an enormous hit at our Christmas progressive dinner-I served these as sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls.
