Miz Helen's Chicken Salad

Today I would like to  continue giving you some of my recipes that I make with the Roasted Chicken. Just about everyone has a favorite Chicken Salad. that always goes to the covered dish luncheons, the afternoon tea's, church socials and the old family stand by. This is my Chicken Salad recipe that has gone to all those places and the one that I reach for the most and is the most requested.

Miz Helen's Chicken Salad

We start the Chicken Salad with a nice Roasted Chicken.

Chop The Chicken
Chop The Apples and Celery
Chop The Grapes
Add The Dressing and Mix
Miz Helen's Chicken Salad
Miz Helen's Kitchen
3 cups Roasted Chicken (breast meat) chopped
2 cups celery with leaves chopped
2 cups red delicious apple with peeling chopped
2 cups red or green grapes chopped
1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Mayo
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or dried thyme
1 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black ground pepper
dash cayenne pepper
Starting with a Chicken Breast from a Roasted Chicken, chop the chicken and add to  large mixing bowl.
Add the chopped celery, apple, and grapes. Mix well
Mix the sour cream, mayo, thyme, dill weed, ginger, salt, pepper and cayenne in a separate bowl .
Pour the sour cream mixture over the chicken mixture and mix well.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
Recipe Tip:
I like to serve it on a bed of  bib lettuce with a garnish of fresh fruit or in a large bowl for a crowd. This is also makes a great sandwich or a wonderful filling for cream puffs.

If you missed the last Roasted Chicken recipe it was this great  Honey Apple Chicken Salad Link
