Dill Chicken Salad

20111106-185111.jpg

Dill Chicken Salad is simplifying a wee bit. Before you freak over the ingredient list, think of this as an example of what you can do with a left over grilled chicken breast.

Ingredients
-2 grilled chicken breasts, chilled
– 1/2 cup mayonnaise (NOT Miracle whip*)
– splash of each
Italian dressing
Lemon juice
Red wine vinegar
– Dry Dill (to taste, I like to know it’s there)
– SP&G (salt, pepper, and fresh ground garlic powder) to taste.
– Diced Granny smith apple
– Diced almond (about a tablespoon)
– Shredded cheddar
– Real bacon bits

This is where the beauty of this application lies. The ratio of ingredients is what you like.

I marinate the chicken breasts in Italian dressing, then freeze 2 breasts per package. Thaw and grill when needed. We had steak the other night and I love to have this chicken salad for weekday lunch. So toss on grill, let em get cooled, bag and throw in the fridge. Voila ~ chicken salad starter!

* Miracle Whip has a strong place in my kitchen, but the real mayo flavor is what chicken salad needs. I’ll save the miracle whip for potato salad and sammiches.

I love garlic, we buy granulated garlic and keep it over the stove in a small pepper grinder from Ikea.
