RECIPE # 4163 - MISS DAISY'S CHICKEN SALAD - Tuesday, July 8, 2008
1 large hen or 4 whole chicken breasts ( I prefer white meat) 1cup diced celery 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish 1 cup finely chopped pecans ( toasted, optional) 1 to 1/2 cups Hellman's mayonnaise salt and black pepper to taste
In a large pot, boil the chicken in salted water until the meat begins to fall off the bones. Cool. Remove the skin and bones. Cut the chicken with scissors into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Add the celery, pickle relish and pecans. Mix. Add the desired amount of mayo and season to taste. For a variety you may add grapes, chopped apple, or fresh pineapple bits. Finely chopped almonds may be used instead pf pecans.
