How To Make Your Own Chicken Salad


Visitors: 207

Making a chicken salad is often perceived by many to be extremely easy; just pour in the chicken. Actually, it is not all about the chicken. Chicken salads are about the overall taste it has, together with other ingredients.

Therefore, it is highly important to take note of the other ingredients that you put in your chicken salad for it to have a delicious and savory taste.

You will need three chicken breast halves that are of large sizes. With these chicken breasts, it is important that you do not remove the bone.

You will also need a good-sized apple, which you will dice; one or two large celery stalks that you will also dice; a half cup of chopped nuts, you can use either pecans or walnuts, both are good for chicken salads; salt and pepper; and a good type of mayonnaise.

First you have to season the chicken with pepper and salt. After doing so, bake it, while placed in foil, for fifty to sixty minutes at three hundred seventy-five degrees. Once done, drain the liquid, for it will not be needed. Leave your chicken to cool down.

Once it is already cool, cut the chicken meat into small chunks. You can also tear the cooked chicken into thin strips if you do not like chunks.

You may add in more salt and pepper if you think doing so is necessary. Add the apple that you have diced, with the celery and the nuts. To attain that desired moistness, put in your mayonnaise.

And there you have it; you have just conjured your very own chicken salad. When you want to serve your self-made chicken salad to your guests already, just place an ample amount of it on a bed of lettuce leaves. Serve it with bread, hot rolls, crackers or biscuits to have a complete, delicious meal.

If you have taken note of the ingredients, you will notice that the ingredients used are not oozing with cholesterol. Chicken salads are healthy, but they will not make you bloat. They are perfect for nutritious diets, for they are most certainly filled with different nutrients.

Making a chicken salad is not difficult. However, you have to be accurate and careful in choosing the ingredients you put in it as to keep that slender body of yours. You do not feel hungry, and you also do not have to worry about getting fat. What more could you ask for?
