Best Chicken Salad EVER?!

If you ever fix or cook anything for Murphy – KNOW that he will say “it’s good – BUT here’s what would make it better.”  I’m okay with it – now.   He inserts his foot into his mouth along with said food.

HOWEVER!   This week – he told me I’d made the BEST chicken salad he’s ever had. No BUTS! Say WHAAAAT?!

Here’s how I did it.  (easy)

I slow cooked a package of boneless skinless chicken breasts.  Only seasoned them with salt, onion & garlic powder, then put pats of butter on each one.   Slow cooked them for about 6-7 hours.  Then I shredded the chicken with 2 big forks.  You can let it cool and make chicken salad at this point, or refrigerate overnight and then make it.   Either way.  I made mine the next day.

  • Shredded chicken
  • Mayo (as little or as much as you like)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder


Viola.  He thought it was the BEST EVER?!   (it IS pretty perfect)  I would have loved to have added grape slices and walnuts.  Add whatever you like!  But for him – simple is perfect.  Enjoy.
