This recipe was taught to me years ago by my employer's personal chef. This chicken salad has been served at my parties for years and I get rave reviews every time. If you're worried about the garlic taste, you can serve some mints at the table as well. : )

Serves:

10-12

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2
6-oz. cans pineapple juice
lemon pepper seasoning to taste
3
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1
8 oz. bag almonds, sliced
garlic powder
mayonnaise to combine

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Poach chicken breasts in pineapple juice with plenty of lemon pepper seasoning (to taste) until cooked through and poaching liquid thickens into a slight glaze. Discard the poaching liquid and allow the chicken to cool.
2
Run the chicken through the food processor until crumbly and then transfer to a bowl. Run almonds through the food processor until coarsely chopped (or finely) chopped. Combine almonds with chicken and add garlic powder - the more the better. Start with 1 tbsp. and work your way up. The garlic powder is what makes this chicken salad so addictive.
3
Add mayonnaise to desired consistency. Serve as sandwiches (I prefer mini croissants) or place in a bowl surrounded by crackers or toasted french bread. Enjoy!
