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. : )

How to Make Deliciously Different Chicken Salad

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!
