Chicken Salad on RoundTV
As promised in the video, here are the ingredients and directions for this refreshing crunchy chicken salad.
- 1 ½ chicken (2 to 3 cups), skinned & fat removed (light and dark meat )
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 1 ½ cup chopped celery
- ½ to 1 cup green onions
- 1 small red onions
- 1/3 cup cilantro
- Zest of ½ orange and ½ lemon
- ½ to 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Pinch of salt
Boil or broil the chicken, bake the almonds for 10 minutes at 400 degrees or lightly pan brown them, chop the vegetables, zest the citrus, and put into a large mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, lemon juice, soy sauce and salt. Mix together. Taste and add more salt, nuts, lemon juice or vegetables as you desire.
For an extra fresh Round Diet twist, add some chopped basil and serve on a bed of shredded Napa cabbage (cut like confetti)–topped with diced orange pieces.
Eat a small amount and chill the rest. This salad will taste even better the next day, which means this makes a great make-ahead-of-time pot luck dish. Pair it with fresh French bread and Gruyere cheese—if you are on a diet eat one slice of bread and a sliver of cheese. Enjoy!
