This hen salad is so good! It’s my “go-to” and it’s good to make on the new days of summer season. My mother’s great housekeeper, Dina, created this recipe. She makes it for my mother virtually each week. My husband and I tasted it whereas visiting and we had been hooked. I did make some skinny modifications like utilizing gentle mayo and solely utilizing chicken hen. Every ½ cup serving has solely 112 energy and 6 grams of fats.
- 4 cups diced or shredded cooked hen breasts from a store-bought cooked rotisserie hen.(pores and skin eliminated), see procuring suggestions
- 3 giant hard-boiled eggs, grated
- ½ cup carrots, diced small
- ⅓ cup celery, diced small
- ⅓ cup onions, candy selection, minced
- ½ cup Finest Meals/Hellman’s gentle mayonnaise
- Just a little salt and lemon pepper or black pepper, to style
Take away pores and skin from hen and diced hen breast. If desired use darkish meat, too.
In a big bowl, add the hen and all the remaining substances. Combine properly to mix.
This may safely maintain in your fridge for 3-5 days. This recipe can simply be lower in half or doubled if wanted.
Most supermarkets promote cooked rotisserie hen. My market sells 3 sorts. Lemon/Pepper hen, common and even an natural, vegetarian feed with no hormones. That’s what I used. They do differ in measurement. This recipe requires 4 cups of diced hen breasts. Since I solely use the chicken, create one other skinny meal with the leftover darkish meat. Or, freeze the darkish meat for a later use.
This recipe could be very versatile. I included the quantity of carrots, celery, and onions I like. You’ll be able to add extra or add much less, to your liking.
I prefer to serve this hen salad as an open-faced sandwich. Unfold 1 slice of Milton’s multi-grain bread or your favourite bread with yellow mustard. Unfold 1/2 cup of hen salad on high of the mustard. High the sandwich with sliced tomato. So yum!
To create a primary course salad, ready a combined greens and veggies salad and toss with my skinny ranch. High the salad with 1 scoop of hen salad.
