chicken salad, honey, pecan, rotissere chickenOne of my favorite go to recipes is the one I have for chicken salad.  I have been making this one for about 20 years and am anxious to share it with you.  Chicken salad is so refreshing and with warmer weather coming, I am ready to make it almost weekly.

I have served this at showers and parties that I have hosted as well as just keeping a bowl made for my family to eat.

There are so many ways to use a rotisserie chicken.  I buy mine at Sams for $4.99.  They are larger than the ones I have found other places, and are always moist instead of dry.  When I make chicken salad from one, I like to do it while the meat is still warm. 
The ingredients blend better and it is always more flavorful.

  2. That chicken salad fruit plate just looks delicious! I like munching fresh fruit with chicken salad — maybe add one little piece of cheese! and a glass of wine!

  3. I love chicken salad sandwiches! Call me slow, but I never thought of using a rotisserie chicken to make it. That would be so much faster than cooking the chicken yourself. I’m going to have to give your recipe a try!!
