Chicken salad is a staple in my fridge year round. It's usually found prominently placed in my fridge nestled right beside the pimento cheese. It's perfect for light meals and between meal snacking to hold my boys over until dinner is ready. There are many styles and variations to make and this chicken salad with eggs holds a special place on our quick meal menu. I'm a frequent customer at our local Costco and almost never leave there without a rotisserie chicken or two in my basket. I either bring it home and divide it for use in a dish later that day, or remove the chicken from the bone and pop it into the freezer to have ready for a meal on a hectic day. That's my go-to ingredient to prepare this easy chicken salad and if never lets me down.
This is the part of the internet I enjoy. So glad I found your recipe. I used left over smoked chicken thighs so mine is a little different. I added a little Cajun seasoning and believe it or not, diced green olives. (just a few ). Never have leftovers...a big hit with crackers or on toasted bread.
This is a great recipe!!! I have always used 1/2 Mayo and 1/2 miracle whip and just a squirt of mustard in my Chicken salad, potato salad, Macaroni salad! It seems to give a great flavor and everyone loves it!!!!
I have been searching for the best chicken salad recipe and this one is my favorite! Chicken salad can be a bit bland but this one is not! Once I started making it, I realized I was out of mayo so I used miracle whip, came out delicious!
Well, that really depends on your preference. I really prefer my chicken to have a moist, soft texture. So, I really prefer the texture of a smoked chicken to one that has been boiled or baked. I just feel you keep more moisture and the chicken is allowed to develop a better texture when it is not fast cooked. I always pull the chicken for my chicken salad, but in smaller pieces. As always, you are in charge, so do this how you will love it.
I too, have three of the above mentioned cookbooks. One of my favorite cookbooks is by Susan Branch. Some of the top recipes that everyone loves are, white sauce enchaladas, and stuffed chili casserole. Her Chicken salad is a favorite with my family, and a summer go to meal. Thanks for sharing.
Some notes for the Mexican Salad with Cilantro Dressing recipe: This beautiful layered salad works well in a pretty glass bowl or trifle bowl. Some stores sell thinly sliced lettuce in a bag. We suggest shredding the Monetary Jack cheese yourself rather than using the pre-shredded kind. If you need to save time, some stores sell pre-cooked bacon slices. This is an easy recipe but has many steps. Go ahead and prepare your beans and dressing in advance. You can chop your veggies the day before and they will keep in plastic bags. Following these steps makes this salad easy to put this together and creates a beautiful dish.

Chinese chicken salad is a salad including chopped chicken and Chinese culinary ingredients that is common in parts of the United States. Though many variations exist, common features of Chinese chicken salads include lettuce, cabbage, chicken (typically breast meat), deep-fried wonton skins or rice vermicelli and nuts (sliced almonds, cashews or peanuts). A basic vinaigrette for the salad includes ingredients like vegetable oil, sesame oil, rice vinegar (or citrus juice). Optional seasonings include dry hot mustard, sesame seeds, coriander and raw ginger or pickled ginger. In restaurants, Chinese chicken salad may be more embellished and offered as an American-style entree salad, similar to Caesar, Chef, and Cobb salads.
In the United States, many common cookbooks from circa 1900 to the 1950s would include chicken salad; but, for many of them, that would often presume a bound salad with chopped vegetables and mayonnaise, typically without lettuce. For example, The Settlement Cookbook by Mrs. Simon Kander, published as early as 1910, includes a simple \"Lettuce salad\" with chopped onion and French or German dressing; but, no Chinese, Asian or Oriental salad of any kind. Similar bound chicken salads are found in the 1974 edition of Joy of Cooking (first published 1931). It was by 1950s that main course type salads started to appear in books like Better Homes & Gardens, New Cook Book; whereas, that often included Caesar salad along with the usual bound chicken salad, but no Asian-styled or -flavored salads. The Good Housekeeping Cookbook introduced a \"Sesame-Spinach Salad,\" with soy sauce and salad oil, although not with sesame oil; whereas, this introduced something closer to Asian flavors, such as a few curry salads and others similar to those of Better Homes. The next generation of ever more exotic and main course salads were on the way.
With intimations of Asian-style lettuce salads appearing by the 1950s and into the 1970s, publishers like California's Sunset Magazine stated in their popular cookbooks and guides that \"You'll find such classics as Caesar, Waldorf, and Crab Louis; international favorites with exotic names like Tabbuli and Antipasto; satisfying whole-meal salads like Shrimp-stuffed Avocados and Taco Salad...\" and so on. Suddenly, sesame seeds went from just being a garnish on a salad, to being an ingredient for a recipe of \"Sesame Seed Dressing\" (p. 6); but, more over, and indeed, there was now a recipe for \"Chinese Chicken Salad\" (p. 35).
Sunset's recipe for Chinese Chicken appeared similarly as to what it's known as today, including: soy sauce; salad oil; garlic and ginger; (relatively exotic) Chinese five-spice or (more common substitute, ground cinnamon); broiler fryer chicken (marinated in sherry wine); sesame seed; shredded iceberg lettuce; green onions; coriander (cilantro); cashews or peanuts; and lemon dressing. It was noted therein, that \"Many variations of this salad vie for popularity. This one, without traditional crisp noodles, is simpler than most...\" since, fried vermicelli noodles is probably difficult to find and make for many homemakers. Most of these recipes had not yet included sesame oil, seemingly still rare to find for most homemakers. 153554b96e
