Grandma never put a poor chicken on the table, whether they be stewed, fried , roasted, broasted or baked. This is one of my favorites from Grandma's Table.

How to Make Chicken Salad ala Grand Mama Anna


  1. ...."Let's sit a spell and have a "spot o' tae". Tea to Grandma Anna rhymed with "hay”.
    Remove skin and de-bone chicken, chop/cube to the size of kidney beans the quantity you desire.
    Wash and carefully dice celery. Slice, chop, or shave the dates, raisins, prunes or cranraisins. Ditto the ripe olives. (Grandma was ahead of her time). Chop Walnuts. Toss all with chicken.
  2. Add mayonnaise or dressing of choice, and mix well. Season to taste. (The purists among you will settle for no less than a homemade mayonnaise or dressing).
  3. Gather up the best bread available or croissants, whether toasted or not, and garnish with lettuce if desired. Pull up your favorite chair, procure a fitting drink-- sit back, Enjoy. BEST ENJOYED WHEN SHARED.
  4. NOTE: For those a little slow on the draw this would work just as splendidly with duck, goose, grouse, pheasant, ptarmigan, turkey or any variety of our feathered friend.
