Introduction: Chicken Salad! Yes!

How to make the food of the gods, Chicken Salad.

Oh chicken salad - you are so delicious. If only I could marry you...

Step 1: Gather the Ingredients

The beautiful thing about chicken salad is it's versatility. You can put as many or few ingredients as you like. It's a great way to clean out the fridge and make something out of it. Just make sure there isn't anything growing on your produce.

This chicken salad was one of my better, check it out:

-Leftover BBQ chicken
-Green onions
-Celery
-Jicama
-Apples
-Raw almonds
-Curry powder
-Rice wine vinegar
-Mayo
-Salt and Pepper

Step 2: Get Chopping

Chop everything into small chunks. The almonds like to be even smaller.

Don't forget to peel the jicama. We used a vegetable peeler, but a knife works too.

Throw everything in the same bowl when you are done chopping it.

Step 3: Mix in the Slop

Mix in the liquids (mayo and rice vinegar) until you get a consistency that looks good. Just a little vinegar goes a long way.

I've found that you should add a little more mayo if you are going to make sandwiches out of the salad because you want everything to stick together and not fall out of the bread. If you are just going to eat the salad as-is, then use as little or as much as you like.

I happened to have some yogurt and dill left over from another meal so i substituted some mayo for that.

Step 4: Spice It Up

Add in the curry powder, salt and pepper to taste.

Other spices to consider that I didn't use are cumin, red chili flakes and dill.

Seriously, pretty much anything is delicious in chicken salad.

Step 5: Final Mix and Eat

Stir it up and eat it!

I can eat this stuff forever. It's great to make at the beginning of the week and eat it in sandwiches for lunch, strait up for dinner and you can pick at it for snacks. It's got meat, veggies, nuts, fruit - how can you go wrong.

Chicken salad is the food equivalent of Voltron.

    Nice food, I can eat a bowl of this.

    I just made this today. Unfortunately a forgot to by curry powder so I used a mix of turmeric and paprika. I also used home-made Mayo that I made from another instructable.

    Jicama maybe called Turnip in other places. In ours, it's called "singkamas" :D

    can any one please tell me what a jicama is and its eqivalents. i live in australia so i dont know if it is the same as something over here because of its name. any help would be appreciated, oh and by the way this looks fukn awesome

    Other than the fact that I don't like chicken salad, it looks great

    Salad is awesome. Salad with chicken in it, even awesomer. :D

    I really don't like chicken salad because of the danger of it going bad if kept out too long. Or if the chicken is undercooked. I think you should have included warnings that undercooked chicken is very dangerous to eat.

    Gimme a break Thomas.You sound like a nagging old lady

    i like to substitute the apple and nuts for pasta
