Oh how I wanted to love you Cilantro Chicken Salad! As a cilantro fan I thought this would be the best chix salad of my life. Unfortunately I found that the poaching process didn't add additional flavor to the chicken but alas the cilantro addition was too overwhelming. I tried in a salad plain and in a sandwich and although as a part of a lettuce salad was the most palatable it was a disappointment overall.
Great non-mayo chicken salad. My husband thinks this is the best chicken salad ever (he does not like mayo). I've made it several times to have for lunch with weekend visitors and we just took it to an evening outdoor concert. Followed the recipe as-is (did not use anchovy). Lots of flavor from the cilantro garlic and shallots but not too much. It is great.
I was looking for a light chicken salad without mayo and this satisfied. It was delicious tossed with spinach and shredded carrots. I only shredded two chicken breasts into the lime mixture; next time I'd double the dressing if using all four chicken breasts. Added a splash of rice vinegar to the lime juice. To improve even more I'd add a dash of sesame oil to give it a bit more Asian flavor and perhaps a bit of minced green onion. Nonetheless excellent and a wonderful base for ideas.
We really enjoyed this. The flavors are very light and refreshing. This would be a perfect summer supper salad. I ate it over fresh baby greens. The teenagers mixed it into some stir-fried sesame rice noodles as well as ate it over the fresh greens.
This recipe was very good. I was a bit worried about it being too overpowering but it wasn't. The shallots and the cilantro go well together. Others mentioned that cooking the chicken in the soy sauce/lime mixture was for naught so I saved 2 tablespoons of that mixture and mixed it in with the shredded chicken to make sure I had some of that flavor still. I also added a large handful of shredded parmesan cheese and we ate this on pitas with a slice of swiss cheese. It was very good. Will definitely make this again.
I really enjoyed this recipe! Didn't use the anchovy paste but I just don't like anchovies. I added chopped fresh mushrooms and red peppers to the broth mixture and then put the cooked down pieces in the salad with the other ingredients. It was absolutely delicious! I will definitely make this dish again.
This was pretty simple and quick to make. It looked a little bland and lifeless but the taste was anything but! It had nice flavor and didn't make you feel heavy and full. I will be making this one again!
WOW! ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!! My entire family liked it! I served it on a tomato basil tortilla wrap with some tomato and avocado like one review suggested. The chicken was moist and shredded nicely and we used fat free chicken broth. We estimated this at 7 or 8 Weight Watchers points for 1 wrap. Will definitely make again. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!!!
