I had a few chicken breast left over after making a chicken caesar salad last night. I needed to find a recipe with the following requirements: low hassle prep and clean-up, few ingredients and tasty (of course).
Jackpot! Smitten Kitchen’s chicken salad recipe was just what I was looking for. I had all of ingredients all ready in my cupboard and the best part is the one step-direction: combine all ingredients then eat.
That’s what I’m talkin’ about.
2 chicken breasts, cooked chicken. I brined then poached the chicken
1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
1 celery rib, diced
2 T. chopped onions or shallots
1 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup mayonnaise (I even found this to be a little too mayonnaise-y)
3 T. white wine vinegar
2 T. tarragon
salt and pepper to taste
Toasted slices of rosemary bread
1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Place on toasted bread and voila! Enjoy!
