There are many other options besides making chicken salad with leftover chicken. This salad is a good alternative to the usual 'go to' recipes you might usually make.
|After mixing the salad in the bowl.|
1 1/2 leftover cooked chicken breasts, skinless
wedge of cabbage
1 apple, cored and sliced
2 green onions, diced
1/4 cup mayonnaise including plain and chipotle lime
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Using a food processor with a metal blade, chop the chicken into very small pieces but not so finely chopped that it becomes pureed. Spoon the chicken out of the food processor into a medium size bowl. Add the apple and cabbage to the food processor and chop into minced/finely chopped pieces. Add the minced cabbage and apple to the chopped chicken. Combine. Add the green onions, mayonnaise and lemon juice to the mixture. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Serves four.
