Chicken salad needs a kick to it or it’s just chicken tossed in mayonnaise.  LPB’s wholen roasted chicken salad has a jalapeño driven kick to it with fresh herbs and other vegetables to give it texture and a lot of taste.

Ingredients

  • One roast chicken (6-7 pounds), all the meat removed, dark and white, and chopped into small cubes
  • 1/2 of a red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup of fresh basil, chiffon cut (roll ten leaves up like a cigar the cut in 1/8 inch strips)
  • 2 tablespoons of dill, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup of sour cream
  • 1/3 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

Making It

  • Place the chicken, bell pepper, jalapeño, onion, celery, basil, dill in a bowl
