Recently Mr. CH has been clearing a path through the woods to the creek. He had been working hard and requested I make homemade chicken salad for lunch.
|Lunch on the back porch|
I thought that was a great idea and wanted to share it with you. I wish you could come for a visit so we could enjoy it on the back porch. I feel like I know so many of you from reading your comments, emails, and your wonderful blogs. Why don’t we live closer???

Cedar Hill Chicken Salad
4 Chicken breasts
3 Stalks of celery, diced
1/3 Cup diced onion
1/2 Cup dried cranberries
2/3 Cup diced walnuts or pecans
1/3 Cup sweet pickle relish
Roast or bake chicken in the oven at 350 degrees covered until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven when done, and dice after it cools. Then add next 5 ingredients and stir. Add enough mayonnaise to cover, adding more or less to your taste, stirring until completely incorporated. Serve on bread for sandwiches or on a bed of lettuce for a salad.
What are you serving today?

Our hard working men so deserve a little culinary love and appreciation from us! This chicken salad looks fabulous! I love that you used sweet pickle relish in this yummy recipe! I make a zucchini relish that would works well in it too.
I just can’t pass this recipe up. I’m putting it on the menu at StoneGable next week! Look for it with a link back to this post.
