Ultimate Chicken Salad               10 servings

This is a very elegant chicken salad, so it's great for luncheons,

 

 

showers, and perfect for a wedding brunch!  Since it's so colorful,  a

 

 

footed glass or an individual compote would be a great way for it to

 

 

be served.  Unlike a regular chicken salad, the ingredients give it

 

extraordinary flavor.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the Ingredients:

•  Chicken-I like to get the boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this

    recipe.  Cook then chicken the way you feel most comfortable.

•  Rice-Choose your favorite but check out our ideas.

•  Pineapple- The chunks are best; you want everything bite-sized.  And

   drain really well!

•  Mandarin oranges-Try to get the ones in fruit juice or light syrup. 

 

 

   They give the best flavor in the salad.  And drain well!

•  Slivered almonds-Lightly toast at 350°F for the best flavor.

•  Vinegar-Rice vinegar can be used for a milder flavor.

It's beautiful served in a footed glass or an individual compote.  Unlike a

 

regular chicken salad, the ingredients make it extraordinary.
