Chicken Salad for Sandwiches - 115767

Submitted by: Loretta Leake
Yummy. Especially if you use Safeway sliced Italian bread. My sister calls it "pillow" bread. Soft and goes great with the chicken salad.

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners

Ingredients

FOR DRESSING
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper ( I used black pepper)
2 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
FOR SALAD
1 1/2 cups shredded boneless skinless chicken breasts (cooked(see note below)
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped (optional, I didn't use them)
Diced Granny Smith apple. I think I used 1/2 an apple.

Method

1 Mix all dressing ingredients together in large bowl.
2 Add chicken, and the rest. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
3 Original Chef's Note: "Cook up your chicken breast nice and tender by poaching or boiling. I shred my chicken the easy way using the plastic blade in my food processor and just giving it a few short pulses."

Sometimes I use chopped up sweet vidalia onion instead of green onion. I think I like it better.
