Great Chicken Salad as a Side or Bun Filler!
Easy Chicken Salad: Make some for your lunch today and pile it high on your very own freshly baked bread using this easy bread recipe from BreadWorld. This is how we made our bread for this chicken salad on a bun, using this very simple recipe. It's also good served with a regular green salad.
Coming up: The ingredients and how to make tasty meal!
1. Use clean cold water to re-hydrate the celery and red onion.
2. When plump, put in a medium sized glass bowl, add the mayonnaise, sour cream, ricotta cheese, and mustard – mix together well.
3. Add the chicken, crumbling it a bit as you go, squeezing out any excess liquid. Stir ingredients to mix in the chicken.
4. Place in an airtight tub in the fridge to chill.
What makes this an easy recipe is the convenience of canned chicken. These cans of chicken last for years (check the date stamp always) and are a great stand-in for fresh chicken. Serve it on fantastic Fresh Bread! or use this alternate fast bread recipe!
Add a juicy slice of tomato and some mixed greens, and some cool cucumber slices. Any way you serve this tasty salad, it makes a winner of a sandwich :-) and is ideal for picnics by the lake, or in your own backyard under the sun umbrella - and let's not forget those lazy pool days!
If you happen to have a couple of spare cans of tuna lying around, then you may want to try your hand at making our tasty tuna salad too! The tuna salad is a breeze to make.
Whenever tuna and chicken cans go on sale, you can bet I stock up on them, and so should you – put it away at today's prices, because you don't know how much more they will cost next week, or next month. I visit our local Sam's Club or BJ's and pick up 'chicken towers' or 'tuna towers'. They're priced right.
