Rotisserie Chicken Salad

The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer. It’s time for back yard gatherings, picnics, and spending more time with family and friends and less time in the kitchen. This chicken salad is so tasty and satisfying and can be put together in no time at all.

I like using a rotisserie chicken for my chicken salads. It’s so much faster and adds a little more flavor so I only have to add a few ingredients. This is tasty in a sandwich, a wrap or even by it’s self with some nice crackers and fruit on the side.

Here’s what you need:

* rotisserie chicken

*1/2 cup mayonnaise to start; add more to taste

*cracked pepper to taste

*1/2 tsp. dried dill weed and add more to taste

*1/4 tsp. celery seed and add more to taste

*1 TBS parsley or more to taste

Remove all of the meat of the chicken from the bones and discard the skin. You should get approximately 3 cups.

Chop into desired size pieces.

Place the chicken into a large bowl and add in the mayonnaise and the seasonings.

Mix all of the ingredients together. Taste as you mix and add more mayonnaise and seasonings if desired.

Chill for 30 minutes or more in an air tight container.

Serve on your bread of choice for sandwiches or scoop some out and serve with crackers.

Fried Chicken Salad Sandwich

During these times of staying at home and limiting my trips to the grocery store, we’ve been using up as much as we can in the pantry and from leftovers in the fridge before restocking. So when we had a few pieces of fried chicken left ( shocking in this house because this southern girl loves her fried chicken) I thought why not make fried chicken salad for sandwiches. I’ve made regular chicken salad plenty of times, but never with fried chicken. It was a hit with hubby, who is an avid lover of chicken salad. The crust of the chicken added a nice crunch while the mayonnaise added a nice creaminess.

This takes no time at all to mix together which is a plus when you’re hungry and want something in a hurry.

Here’s what I used:

* cold fried chicken

* mayonnaise

* dried dill; to taste

* celery seed; to taste

* cracked pepper; to taste

* desired sandwich bread

These are the leftover chicken pieces that I used, but use whatever you have on hand.

Chop chicken into bite size pieces and place into a bowl.

Add mayonnaise to taste.

Add seasoning to taste. I used dill, celery seed and cracked pepper…..

Feel free to use any other seasoning that you like in your chicken salad.

Mix well.

Place on desired bread and serve.
