NRW: Chicken Salad

Monday I had the taste for Chicken Salad, but had never made one before. So I thought back to the best chicken salad I had ever had. It was made by my Aunt Elaine. I knew it contained cranberries, mayo, and the obvious, chicken, but figured I would just have to wing the rest. What I came up with was so yummy that hubby had eaten half of it by the next day! Hope you like it.

1 cooked rotisserie chicken, cubed
1 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cups dried cranberries
1/2 cup dried cherries
1 cup chopped celery
1 onion, chopped
ground black pepper to taste

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise with paprika, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and seasoned salt. 
  2. Mix in dried cranberries, cherries, celery, and onion.
  3. Add chopped chicken, and mix well. Season with black pepper to taste.

Sounds yummy! I like a little extra crunch in my chicken and turkey salad, so I normally add either slivered almonds or crushed walnuts. And, if I have any seedless grapes handy, I'll half those and throw them in. Perfect summertime meal!
