Angel's Chunky Chicken Salad Recipe
I made up this recipe after a similar sandwich served at a diner. It's not the same, but just as good.
For those of us who are obsessed with celery, dill pickles and chicken, this is the dish for us! My family totally loved this one, but not as much as I did. And Angel, 3T of mayo is just perfect for a small chicken breast or two small halves. I didn't change a thing, except I didn't want to deal with a half chicken breast so I used it all (but it was small).I also used red onion for color. Your measurements are perfect! This is a keeper. We loved the subtle taste that the dill pickle and onion provided. For those of us who love savory over sweet meat and poultry dishes, this is a definite keeper.I served on a bed of red leaf lettuce and garnished with thin rings of red onion. YUM! Thanks Angel.
I don't get it. To all of those that rated this recipe down then said to use sweet relish, not fair. I am one of those that does not like sweet meat salads (there are a few of us out there) so I was purposely looking for one that does not have sweet relish and here it is! Perfect the way it is! No gloppy mayo salad, just enough to hold it together and the dill pickles are prefect!!! That is what this recipe is and if you are more partial to sweeter salads, look for a recipe that suits your taste instead of bashing something that isn't what you want. This is a wonderful recipe!!! Thank you Angel!
This is how chicken salad should be done!! lol It is one of my all time favorite foods but the ones I buy in restaurants or grocery stores are far too sweet for my taste. The only modifications I made to it were to skip the pickles. Not a pickle fan! lol I also increased the amount of chicken and mayonnaise and added pecans and a small amount of white grapes for a slight sweetness. Served it in pita bread and I was in heaven!!
I made this last night and my husband and I both loved it! It was especially good to me because I am not a miracle whip / salad dressing / sweet pickle person which so many use in their chicken salad. Thank you for this great recipe.
I made this chicken salad and served it on small rolls for a baby shower. It was a hit! I omitted the pickle (personal preference). I will be using this recipe again! Thanks!
Ohhh yahhh!!! Not sure how much chicken I used (made a roast chicken earlier in the week and used the left overs), roughly 2-3 cups. I used 2 celery stalks, 4-5 Tbsp Miracle Whip (to account for the extra chicken), 1/4 cup sweet onion, 2 dill pickles, 1/4 tsp garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. I chopped everything really tiny just because I like it that way. It lets you get a little of everything in each bite. I LOVED IT!!! I asked my husband if he liked it and he said, "it's oniony". As other reviews stated, I guess it's a matter of personal taste. It was super quick, super easy, and super good. We had it with Chicken Ramen Noodles. Nice, easy meal, almost no clean up. I'll make this with all my leftover chicken.T hanks Angel.
