I love chicken salad but have found very few brands that I actually like. Some are very garlicky tasting and some are just weird tasting. I thought since my chicken casserole recipe turned out pretty, I’d try my hand in some chicken salad.
I use McCormick Montreal Chicken for my chicken casserole and for baked chicken. It’s a really good seasoning and kind of has a little kick to it. I have also grilled with it and it is wonderful. The whole line of the Montreal Seasoning is really tasty. Keep in mind, I’m the only one who eats chicken salad at my house, so this recipe is for a small amount of chicken salad. Add more to the ingredients if you want to make a larger amount.
1 chicken breast
McCormick Montreal Chicken Seasoning
1/2 celery stick – chopped
sweet pickle cubes
Optional – 1 boiled egg, chopped onions, halved grapes, chopped pecans
Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Tenderize chicken breast with fork by poking chicken thoroughly on both sides. Sprinkle seasoning on both sides and bake for about 30 minutes or until juices run clear. Let cool a bit after baking.
Chop cooled chicken to desired coarseness then mix with the remaining ingredients. Add mayo last to your desired amount.
Serve cooled & enjoy!
