One of my mom’s best friend’s Anita makes the best chicken salad. It is so good. I had planned on making Giada’s Curry Chicken Salad for dinner the other night, but didn’t have a few of the ingredients, so I decided to make Anita’s Chicken Salad and take some cues from Giada by adding some chili powder and cayenne to it. I also decided to add some honey mustard. It added some nice flavor, but would be just as good without these three ingredients. It’s also good for you too.
Light & Healthy Chicken Salad
2 large chicken breasts, baked & shredded
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. fat free mayo
3 tbsp. honey mustard (optional)
3 tbsp. sweet relish
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. chili powder (optional)
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
Romine Lettuce, chopped
Shredd chicken with a fork. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to allow flavors to marry. Serve on kaiser rolls topped with romaine lettuce & tomato.
