Ok, so it is only famous to my old coworkers, but that has to count for something. Right? I have seen chicken salad made so many different ways, and they always consisted of celery. Well, I hate celery and pretty much everything else, so I made my own creation. Honestly, I don’t know where I got the idea to put lemon juice in it, but it happened. It’s a beautiful thing.
This is the perfect dish for a potluck, and that is where it became famous for me. It is still being made at the Allied DC (shout out!) potlucks even though I don’t work there anymore. I like to eat this 2 ways, with Wheat Thins or Pretzel Crisps. You can eat it however you like, but I definitely recommend trying it with those two items. Below is the recipe.
Canned Chicken Breast (you can use whatever chicken you want)
Mayonnaise (I usually use about 1 1/2 tablespoons, but depends on how much you are making and how much you love mayo)
Dried Cranberries (I just pour them in until I think I have enough)
Lemon Juice (Just a couple drops)
Pepper (whatever you like)
Put all contents above in a bowl and mix. DONE!
All ingredients above are based on your own taste and how much you want to make. I made enough for 2 lunches and used 3 tiny cans of chicken (I thought they were bigger, I am a bad shopper). This is a super easy recipe and it is very good.
