Chicken Salad

Beef Tortilla Rolls, Chicken Salad. Chicken Soup 040I was undecided as what to make for supper tonight.  Wanted something different.  Love chicken. but what kind of chicken.  No point in asking my husband.  He’s no help.  He’ll say “Anything”.  So I decided to make chicken salad.  There are so many ways to make this dish.  But not wanting to fuss too much, the old fashioned way was good enough.  I opened the fridge to see what I had to put into it and then it just a matter of cooking, chopping and mixing.  I opted to bake the chicken and once that was done, supper was pretty near ready.  I usually do my chopping ahead of time, so when the chicken is ready all I have to do is throw everything together.  Love this recipe.  It is really tasty and when you put a couple slices of bacon on top,  oohh gosh it’s good.

Beef Tortilla Rolls, Chicken Salad. Chicken Soup 019Place a whole chicken into a casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees for approximately 2 hours.  I find it a good idea to check it with a meat thermometer.  I usually add a little water in the bottom of the pan but wait to season it.  You can season with salt and pepper if you like.  Even a little garlic powder would be nice.

Beef Tortilla Rolls, Chicken Salad. Chicken Soup 040There’s so many ways to serve this.  This time I opted to serve it buffet style.  You can serve it on a bed of lettuce or even in an avocado. I love it in a sandwich.  It’s totally up to you.  Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, broil some bacon.  If you make sandwiches, they’re delicious with the bacon, lettuce and tomato.
