Old Fashioned Chicken Spread

Chicken Spread in our family is a real classic. I remember when my Mother attaching the hand grinder to the end of the cabinet and grinding up the left over chicken to make a delicious chicken spread. I still have that old grinder of hers but I sure am glad that I don't have to use it today, I have a much easier way of making it today along with a few of the ingredients that are different. Our family still enjoys this recipe as much today as they all did in the day of the food grinder.

  1. The chicken spread sounds delicious, Miz Helen. My mom always used a grinder, too, and I used to, also, but I'm like you, and use my food processor now. I just made some ham salad last week with some leftover ham.
    Hope you're having a good week!
