This hen salad is so good! It’s my “go-to” and it’s excellent to make on the new days of summer season. My mother’s fantastic housekeeper, Dina, created this recipe. She makes it for my mother nearly each week. My husband and I tasted it whereas visiting and we have been hooked. I did make some skinny modifications like utilizing mild mayo and solely utilizing chicken hen. Every ½ cup serving has solely 112 energy and 6 grams of fats.
- 4 cups diced or shredded cooked hen breasts from a store-bought cooked rotisserie hen.(pores and skin eliminated), see procuring ideas
- 3 massive hard-boiled eggs, grated
- ½ cup carrots, diced small
- ⅓ cup celery, diced small
- ⅓ cup onions, candy selection, minced
- ½ cup Finest Meals/Hellman’s mild mayonnaise
- A little bit salt and lemon pepper or black pepper, to style
Take away pores and skin from hen and diced hen breast. If desired use darkish meat, too.
In a big bowl, add the hen and all the remaining components. Combine nicely to mix.
It will safely hold in your fridge for 3-5 days. This recipe can simply be reduce in half or doubled if wanted.
Most supermarkets promote cooked rotisserie hen. My market sells 3 varieties. Lemon/Pepper hen, common and even an natural, vegetarian feed with no hormones. That’s what I used. They do differ in measurement. This recipe requires 4 cups of diced hen breasts. Since I solely use the chicken, create one other skinny meal with the leftover darkish meat. Or, freeze the darkish meat for a later use.
This recipe could be very versatile. I included the quantity of carrots, celery, and onions I like. You may add extra or add much less, to your liking.
I wish to serve this hen salad as an open-faced sandwich. Unfold 1 slice of Milton’s multi-grain bread or your favourite bread with yellow mustard. Unfold 1/2 cup of hen salad on high of the mustard. Prime the sandwich with sliced tomato. So yum!
To create a principal course salad, ready a blended greens and veggies salad and toss with my skinny ranch. Prime the salad with 1 scoop of hen salad.
