Chicken and Shredded Potato Salad

Pat Duran


This is an easy recipe and not too complicated. It is a great recipe as an alternate to your traditional potato salad- quite tasty;and a great way to get the kids to eat vegetables.
If you like you can toss it all together and mound the mixture on top of a crispy piece of flat bread and garnish with the potatoes around the side or on top and serve with a dab of sour cream or a little salsa and avocado.

How to Make Chicken and Shredded Potato Salad


  • 1Chicken Part:
    Marinate the chicken breasts with the ingredients listed for at least 2 hours. Grill the breasts;then cut into thin pieces.
    (sometimes I use rotisserie chicken pieces and don't marinate- getting lazy in my old age.LOL)
  • 2Veggie Part:
    Combine the beans,carrots,onion and chicken and parsley.
  • 3Potato Part:
    Heat oil in deep skillet to 375^-making sure the oil fills only 1/2 way in the pan.
    Fry potatoes until golden brown. Drain on paper toweling.
    Note: Another cheat- I use fried potato stick snack pieces instead of frying my own- and found it tastes great.
    Toss all ingredients with the mayonnaise and add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley.
