Bob's Bumpin' Chicken Salad
This recipe comes from my husband's coworker, Bob. It is really, really good. He suggests using a rotisserie chicken which really cuts down on prep time. I have always used chicken breasts that I've poached. This way is much easier and very tasty. You can eat it by itself or have it as a sandwich. We ate it on toasted burger buns with lettuce and tomato. I plan on making this again and again. I love getting recipes from other people. I'll be making a rice dish soon from one of Bob's recipes and I hope that he plans on sharing many more with me.
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup mayo
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 1/2 cups cooked chicken (use rotisserie chicken from store)
1 cup finely diced celery
1/3 cup slivered almonds (chop these up a bit)
In a small bowl combine lemon juice, mayo, salt and pepper.
Toss with chicken, celery and almonds
(I made this the night before and let the flavors blend...it was great the next day.)
