I love roast chicken but many times we can’t finish a whole one and end up with chicken that won’t quite be enough for another meal but a shame to waste. That’s when I make Chicken Salad.
I use the left over chicken meat from my Roasted Garlic Butter Chicken to make this delicious Chicken Salad. It’s very tasty because the left over chicken is very tasty, and it’s a great way to avoid waste and make use of leftovers. You can make Chicken salad with any type of roast chicken including the rotisserie chicken you buy at Costco and Sam’s Club.
Chicken Salad is a great idea for lunch or tea. You can serve it with greens for a light lunch, use it to fill your favorite bread or tortilla to make a sandwich or wrap, or use it to make those cute tea sandwiches for a tea party. I adore tea parties!
Left over roast chicken – diced
1/2 to 1 Cup Mayonaise depending on how much chicken you have – remember the more mayo you use the creamier your salad will be.
1/4 Cup Fresh Dill chopped
1 Tbs. Dried Dill
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix very well.
Make sure the herbs and spices are evenly distributed and the chicken and mayo are mixed together well.
Use a scoop over salad greens for a light lunch salad; or as a sandwich or wrap filling.
Store in airtight container in the fridge. It will store for about 2-3 days.
