Chicken salad can be really hard to find and delicious, but making it yourself is a great way to get started.
I’ll show you how to do it and give you some tips on how to make your own.
Chicken salad is a dish made with chicken, herbs, and spices.
It’s usually served with lettuce, tomato, and sometimes a side of rice.
This dish is a staple in many families.
There are many variations, and you can even make it yourself.
First, I recommend you make a batch of chicken.
I have found that homemade chicken is the best choice.
It makes the most flavorful sauce and will keep for up to six days.
It will be easier to store than store-bought chicken.
For the rest of this tutorial, I’ll be using a frozen batch of canned chicken breast, but you can use frozen ground turkey, or any other type of chicken that’s frozen and thawed.
Just make sure you store it in the fridge, and it will keep longer.
If you have leftover chicken, you can thaw it, and then you can cook it.
If it doesn’t freeze well, you may want to thaw overnight, and reheat the remaining ingredients the next day.
For my recipe, I am using frozen canned chicken, so it will stay frozen for a month or so.
If not, you will have to thawed and reheated the rest.
The chicken will cook up well, and when you serve it, you get a light, flavorful salad that will satisfy your taste buds.
Chicken Salad Ingredients: 1 can of frozen chicken breast 1 cup of water 1 tablespoon of lemon juice 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 garlic clove, minced 1 cup fresh herbs 1/4 cup olive oil (I use olive oil) 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons tomato paste 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice Salt and pepper to taste 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro (optional) 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional; optional if you don’t want cilantro) Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash the chicken and trim the skin.
Cut the skin in half, then cut each half in half again lengthwise, so that the skin is 1/8 inch thick.
Add the chicken to a bowl and set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large pot or wok over medium heat.
Add chicken to the pot.
Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the skin starts to turn golden brown.
Remove chicken from the pot and set it aside.
Drain the chicken on paper towels.
Using a slotted spoon, break the chicken into pieces.
Cut each piece into quarters, and place the quarters in a food processor.
Add 1 tablespoon oil to the processor.
Pulse until the oil is melted and combined.
Add all remaining ingredients except the cilantro and parsley.
Pulse for a few seconds to combine the ingredients.
Add water, lemon juice, and olive oil to pan.
Add salt and pepper.
Cook until the mixture is boiling.
Add chopped fresh herbs and chicken to pan and cook, stirring frequently, until the herbs are fragrant and the chicken is cooked through.
Serve hot with lettuce and a side salad.
Recipe Notes: This recipe does not include any of the following ingredients: salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, or garlic powder salt, garlic, onion, salt, tomato sauce, and cilantro can be found at most supermarkets, health food stores, and restaurants.
If using a canned chicken breasts, be sure to use fresh chicken breasts because they have less moisture.
If canned, try using chicken that has been thawed overnight, or fresh chicken if you can find it.
The amount of water in this recipe is based on the size of your chicken breasts.
If the recipe calls for the water to be used up, try cooking the chicken in a pan with a bit of olive oil instead of the oil in the pot that was previously used.
If possible, reduce the water in the pan before adding the chicken.
Chicken will thaw much faster in a crockpot.
Cooks like to eat the chicken after it’s thawed, but it takes longer.
I always add extra water as soon as I remove the chicken from a crook, so you can eat it right away.
