Sonoma Chicken Salad June 10, 2012

I love chicken salad sandwiches as I’ve mentioned in a previous post!  This is the second recipe I’ve posted and I like this one is a tad better.  I really liked the poppy seed dressing and the cranberries!  I might add some green onion next time to give it a little more kick.  The recipe made a good amount of salad.  It would easily make 6 average sandwiches or 4 large sandwiches.  This is something I could make on Monday and eat all week for lunch!

Substitutions:  I made quit a few substitutions.  I substituted walnuts for pecans.  I excluded the poppy seeds (I don’t like them in my teeth).  I didn’t have honey, so I used agave nectar.  Also, I used shredded rotisserie chicken.

Time:  20 minutes

I dread shredding chicken.  I tend to do a lot of shredding as called for in my recipes.  I saw this pin that suggested I use my Kitchen Aid mixer to shred my chicken!  This seemed easy enough and worth a try.  I tossed in two warm cooked chicken breast.  I used the paddle attachment and turned on the mixer to speed 4 and let it do it’s magic for about 20 seconds.  Voila!  I was impressed with my nicely shredded chicken.  This will be a HUGE time saver for me.  I’m so glad I came across this tip!
