One Mistake - A New Recipe
I decided to put the chicken in the food processor. I don't know why, but that was my decision. I made a spreadable chicken salad. I didn't know how it would turn out, but I was pleasantly surprised. Hubby and my oldest went nuts - they really liked it.
My philosophy concerning this particular salad is to just put in whatever ingredients you have in the fridge. I have made this salad with quite a few ingredients, and it always turns out well.
Here is the basic recipe.
Chicken breasts and/or thighs
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place chicken on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and steak seasoning. Cook about 10 on the first side, flip and cook about 6 minutes on second side, or until chicken is done. Let cool.
When chicken is cool, cut into medium sized chunks and place in food processor. Process until chicken is starting to break up. Add any combination of other ingredients to the chicken and process until desired consistency.
Here are my other ingredient combinations that I have come up with.
hard boiled eggs
Come up with your own combinations - this is a creative dish!
Put mixture in a large bowl and add mayonnaise and Dijon mustard. Combine; season with salt, pepper, and steak seasoning if desired.
This turned out to be one of my favorite recipe creations. I really like that it came out of a mistake in cooking.
This is also a good recipe for those who are watching carbohydrates. What I have added to my chicken is either low in carbs - or has no carbs at all. Just watch what you put the salad on. Enjoy!!
