Autumn Chicken Salad (For arie) 
1st-Dec-2007 04:41 pm
This one is an old favorite I made up accidentally one day. It's become something of a favorite. I told arie about it on Thanksgiving day when we were talking on the phone back & forth and she demanded I write it down. I only just remembered that I had not done it yet, so here it is:

Autumn Chicken Salad
All-white meat chicken salad with tart apples, dried cranberries & pecans, flavored with Autumn spices. Very unusual, but VERY good! I line pita breads with leaf lettuce and Swiss cheese, then stuff them with this - it's one of my favorite variations on plain old boring chicken salad.
  • 3 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast
  • 1 Granny Smith apple; cored and diced (peeling is optional - I leave it on for extra color and texture)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnammon
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger (fresh grated is better)

  1. In a large bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream or yogurt, salt, pepper, and spices - mix well.
  2. Add the chicken, cranberries, apples & pecans and toss together to evenly blend the dressing into the salad.

I never, ever cook. I can barely get myself to boil water (if I do, I nuke it).

But, this sounds so simple and good, I'm going to mark it down in my LJ "Memories".

Thank you.

P.S.: Do you have a recipé for an 'Angry Biscuit'?

HA! No, but I probably should invent one!

Ooooh, that's good - but I was thinking of a garlic/cheese biscuit with green chilis and stuff - maybe spiked with some sort of hot pepper?

Also, you'll dig the eggplant recipe I just posted.

You really ought to friend me back someday, Biscuit, if only for the recipes (see my recipe tag).

Make it a good weekend.

I'll do my very best not to send your cholesterol skyrocketing...

Your blood pressure may be another matter, however. :)
