An easy peasy chicken salad recipe!

French’s Foods and TwitterMoms are teaming up to find out who knows there way around the kitchen! For more details about the TwitterMoms contest you can go here or you can visit the French's Foods Contest page here.

Here is my recipe. I recently started cooking alot with the rotisserie chickens you can get already cooked in the deli. It's so simple and easy to whip something good up with! My husband and 7 year old son both love this one!!

Easy Chicken Salad with a Kick!

You will need:

3 Cups cooked Chicken, Again I cut up a cooked store bought Rotisserie
1/2 Cup of French's Honey Dijon Mustard
2 TBSP of Olive Oil
1 Bag of Mixed Salad
3/4 cup of Shredded cheese
4 Hardboiled eggs
1/4 Cup of Croutons or French's Fried Cheddar Onions
3/4 Cup of your favorite Salad Dressing, We like Ranch but the Honey Mustard is Great too.

Add your Olive Oil to your skillet and heat it up. While your waiting on that take the cut up chicken and mix it in a bowl with the 1/2 cup of Honey Dijon Mustard. When your skillet is ready toss in the chicken for about 3 to 5 minutes, just long enough to crisp and brown it a bit. When that is done set it aside and dump your salad mix, diced eggs, cheese, and croutons in a salad bowl and mix. Then add your chicken and toss with your dressing of choice.

The recipe varies depending upon what you like as with any recipe. My husband like more meat anything, we also use a little more salad dressing as well as toppings on our salad.

I wish I had a picture! I will have to take one next time I make it!

Yum! That sounds so good. I love chicken salad. The crunchy onions would be such a nice texture. I am printing this one out. Thanks!
