Recipe of the Week -- chicken salad

I know. EVERYONE under the sun has a chicken salad recipe. But it seems like everyone under the Southern sun puts apples/grapes/nuts/or a combo of those into their chicken salad. Ugh. I can't handle that.

Sooo...after perusing several versions of a chicken salad recipe, I've come up with Lora's version. It's a little out there. But if you have weird tastes like I do, you may just like it :0) I should just mention right now that the measurements I'm listing here are approximate and I adjust it every time!

Chicken Salad
6 frozen or thawed chicken strips

1/2 cup mayonaise

1 stalk celery, chopped

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tablespoon Tabasco or other hot sauce (adjust this for your spiciness preference)

1/4 packet of ranch dressing mix

freshly ground pepper

Boil chicken. Cut/shred into pieces (your preference on size) and mix with all other ingredi
ents. Serve with a great slice of white bread or crackers. YUM.

Sounds delicious.

I like to use roasted chicken leftovers for my chicken salad. Also, I mix a bit of mustard with the mayo. But I agree about no apples/grapes/nuts/etc.
