I’ve never really liked chicken salad. There was just something about the “sauce”. It always seemed…bland. But I love the concept. So I set out to re-create chicken salad, but instead of following a traditional recipe, I whipped up one of my favorite sauces:
Remoulade aka Remy Sauce
And together with chicken, the results are…
Even better, it’s fast, easy, and can be made in advance! YAY!!!
Make it! >
2 tbsp. 0% fat Greek Yogurt
2 tbsp. mayonnaise or light mayonnaise (not feeling it? Use only yogurt!)
2 tbsp. ketchup
2 scallions, sliced
1 tbsp. sliced shallot
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
Put all of the above in a food processor and give it a whirl, scraping the sides. You want this to be blended but some chunks are fine. Transfer in to a bowl and add:
One red pepper, diced
1 tbsp. dill pickle relish
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cooked and cut in to chunks)
Mix well and salt and pepper to taste; Voila!
Serve on a sandwich, with chips/crackers, or with a spoon!
Zesty! Tangy! Delicious
I can’t wait for the leftovers!
I loved the conversation on GHM facebook yesterday!! Conclusion: We all love hummus!
