Default Chicken Salad Special

HI Everyone!

I had this chicken salad at my daughter's bridal shower last October. I was amazed and delighted that it was a very different chicken salad than I'd ever had. So I looked it up online - her future sister-in-law got it at Costco - and found this:

Costco Chicken Salad
3 cans canned chicken breast, drained
1/2 C mayonnaise (Kraft Mayo W/Olive Oil)
1/2 t salt
1 t parsley or cilantro
1/4 C chopped green onion
1/2 C celery, chopped
1 T lemon juice
1/4 C. Shredded (not grated) Parmesan cheese
Mix Together Ingredients

What makes this salad great is the shredded parmesan cheese AND the Kraft mayo with olive oil. You can fool around with the other ingredients as you like. I use cilantro instead of parsley which brings out a great flavor, imho.

Happy mixing!

I try to avoid canned goods or fake mayonnaise...but sub the real deal for the fake and that recipe sounds interesting.

Thanks for sharing!

Looks good. This is basically how I make chicken salad (minus the cheese 'cause I have dairy sensitivity). And I use Hellman's mayo - this is one convenience food I'm not willing to make myself so I just accept it as it is.

Mayo makes a lot of things taste great. I just love it!

Costco Chicken Salad
3 cans canned chicken breast, drained
If you check the packaging/labeling at Costco, you'll find that they use their leftover rotisserie chicken from the previous day to make their chicken salad and pasta offerings.

I haven't been able to get their chicken salad on several of my last visits there and was told that what they made depended on the amount of chicken available and the store's sales history of the products. They sell more of the chicken pasta dishes than the salad, so they will make fewer or even none of the salad.

Thank you for the recipe. I'll use leftover breast meat, though, and won't be disappointed when I have to do the making instead of Costco.

I often buy a rotisserie chicken just so I have cooked chicken leftovers, and some of them go into a chicken salad.

The rotisserie chicken is a convenience food for me. Yes, I could cook it myself, but theirs (Whole Foods) is so much tastier, and it becomes a no-cook night which is always welcome.

In fact, I have leftovers of a chicken in the 'fridge. I think today's menu is going to include chicken salad rolled up in a large lettuce leaf.

HI VeeJay,

I love a rotisserie chicken. I get mine at Dierbergs since WF is over in St. Louis and too far for me to go except on a special shopping trip.

I love "no cook" nights even better since I am not inspired to cook much at all except for my 8 year old.

I also keep forgetting about using lettuce leaves for a "bun". Thanks for reminding me!

Other 'bun' substitutes are bacon weaves and thin patties of ground meats. Just this morning I fixed two thin patties of JD sage sausage, and placed a 'pattie' of scrambled eggs in the middle. It was delicious!

The bacon weaves are stronger, more substantial than ground meat patties . . . I cut three bacon slices in half and then weave them together as a lattice (well, I do several pounds of bacon at once, but three slices per weave ). I fashion them on a jellyroll pan lined with parchment paper and bake them in the oven at 350° for 20-30 minutes, or until they're as crisp as I like. Since OWC likes his less crisp, I get to watch closely! My large jellyroll pan holds six weaves at once.

What kinds of bacon do y'all use? The labels I've been reading seem to tell me I have to choose between nitrites or sugars (or both). Bacon weaves sound so cool.
