Easy Lunch

I recently hosted a bridal shower for a friend of mine, the lovely Steph and made what felt like 40 pounds of this chicken salad. I've pared the recipe down (lest you make 40 pounds too) and decided to share the chicken salad that received rave reviews!

Steph's Chicken Salad
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked and chopped chicken meat
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • optional: 1/8 cup dried cranberries
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, fresh lemon juice, sweet relish and pepper until well combined and set aside. In a larger bowl, mix together everything else :) You just want to toss it all together until combined - not breaking everything into tiny pieces. Pour 3/4 of the mayo mixture onto the chicken mixture and stir together. If this is "wet" enough for you - you can ignore the rest of the mayo mixture or add it all! Serve it by itself or like I did on cute little tea sandwiches and enjoy!
