How to Make Basic Chicken Salad
I crave tuna every once in a while, but it's hard to find here. So I have to substitute with chicken (of the land). Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about mercury...
Recipe after the jump:
-1/2 lb cooked chicken, shredded
-1 celery stalk, diced
-salt and pepper to taste
-fresh or dried herbs
-additional flavor components of your choice!
-Mix; chill in order for flavors to mingle. Serve as is or on a sandwich.
I like onions, but unfortunately my stomach can't always handle them. One solution is to use a seasoned salt. More additions include curry, chutney, pineapple, grapes, or nuts. For flavoring you can try dill, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, mustard, etc.
You can always make a "melt" by throwing some cheese on top and heating it up in the toaster oven. I wish I had a toaster oven.
