I HATE CHICKEN SALAD. like, a lot. Mostly because mayonnaise is the absolute grossest thing on the planet. But I was once asked to bring some to a party, I so figured, rather than ski the party, I may as well make some that was actually good.
3C Smoked, Shredded Chicken Breast
6 oz Cream Cheese, slightly softened
2 Medium sized Green Apples, 1 peeled & grated. The other cut into thin slices
1/2 Cucumber, sliced thin
15-20 Large Red Grapes, sliced thin
4 Leaves Butter Lettuce
Lemon zest of 1 lemon
S&P to taste
8 slices Dark Rye Bread
1.Combine the Chicken and Cream Cheese. Stir it until there are NO cream cheese chunks. You want it smooth. Add the shredded apple, lemon zest, and about 3/4 of the grapes. season with salt and pepper. ( I like a little more pepper in this recipe!) Stir to combine.
2. On 4 slices of bread, layer a hefty amount of the chicken mix, then a layer of sliced grapes, apples, then cucumber and lettuce. Serve immediately!
* This is also an amazing compliment to crackers
* Adding candied walnuts to this recipe is also super good!
