Now, along with the massive amounts of garlic that is eaten in our house, we also consume equal amounts of cilantro. I realize that cilantro is a love-hate thing. Those who love it really LOVE it and those who hate it...well, they're just plain wrong!! But, if you're a lover, then follow me as I guide you through the easiest and most delicious chicken salad ever.
Easy Chicken Salad
The most time consuming part of making the salad is removing the chicken from the bone. I've made the salad with lemon pepper chicken and the plain rotisserie chicken. Either type will make a good chicken salad. I, personally, would avoid the BBQ flavored one but that's just my choice. I shred the chicken by hand.
Next, I put Eric to work doing what he does best, chopping! That's a lot of cilantro and green onions.
Next, I work on "Kim's Special Sauce". This sauce is great as a base for any kind of salad including pasta salad. I also make it to use as a dip for chicken fingers and fries.
1 cup mayonaise
2 tbsp. dijon-style mustard
4-5 drops pepper sauce
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
Mix all ingredients together until just blended. Enjoy on your favorite bread!
