Chicken Salad Fit for a Dragon
Ingredients30 m servings 459 cals
- Stir the chicken, mayonnaise, celery, pine nuts, lemon juice, relish, jalapeno pepper, and black pepper together in a mixing bowl until evenly blended. Cover, and refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
- Cook's Note
- Here's a jalapeno tip. I fine chop and freeze in a sealed sandwich bag. Lay the bag flat so that it is not a solid lump. I can grab a couple of tablespoons to throw into a dish anytime I need without extra prepping!
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This is tasty, not as spicy as I expected it to be. The pepper adds a nice kick, but isnt overpowering. Pine nuts are about $10 for a very small container in my area. I used sliced almonds since...
Such a refreshing taste. I ate it 4 days in a row as a mid-day snack. Easy to make and great tasting. I will make this often. One thing is that I did not eat it with bread or roll. I ate it in a...
Great recipe for leftover chicken. Add a little of this and a touch of that to make it match your taste buds.
This is a fantastic recipe! The heat is just enough and the Pine Nuts add another ‘crunch’. I modified a few things from availability of items in my kitchen.
