I am not one to follow recipes. I use them more as guidelines, really. I love to make chicken salad. I tried it many times until I got it "right" by my tastes and Scott's. I think that I have finally got it right. Most people say they like it when they have it, and I hope they really do like it. I thought that I would post my recipe for chicken salad tonight. I made it for myself since Scott is in class. I wrote down how much of what I put in so I could put the recipe in my hand-written recipe book. Maybe my recipe for chicken salad will make it into yours...
Marcy's Chicken Salad
1 13oz. can of chicken breast
3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
2 tsp minced garlic (the kind you can buy in the jar)
4 Tbsp dill relish
3 Tbsp pimiento
1 1/2 tsp minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 stick of celery, chopped finely
approximately 2.5 handfuls of sliced or slivered almonds
I usually mix the first 7 ingredients together and get the flavor right and then add the celery and almonds. Basically, I just add stuff until I get it the way I want it, but this is what I did this time.
Tonight I made a chicken salad melt with sourdough bread and colby-jack cheese. (See the picture above)
It was YUM-O!
