Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner

Tonight I made chicken salad and put it in pitas. It was delicious. I really can't claim much of the credit though, I just combined parts of a food network recipe with parts of my friend Lindsey's recipe.

4 cups diced chicken (I used canned chicken because that is what Lindsey uses, it is good for this)
1 stalk celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice
4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced (I used chives instead)
Handful or two of red grapes, quartered
1/4 cup slivered almonds, browned
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons strained freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Pocket Pitas for serving

In a mixing bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, scallions and herbs. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Add to the chicken and mix gently until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  1. Thanks for your post Cara. I am getting eaten alive on my blog. It's nice to see that one person doesn't think I'm crazy. I love the Owens BTW. Tell Jackson hi. Also your recipe looks really good. I just made some chicken salad that is really similar. Try it with carmelized onions, it is fabulous.
