Sherry Chicken Salad - Quick, Easy and Good For You Too

What you Need:

  • Whole Wheat bread
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Sherry Cooking Wine
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Garlic Glove minced
  • Roasted chicken shredded * no bones - I use our left overs, so I'll say about 2 cups
  • 1/3 cup Red Bell Peppers diced
  • 1 Celery Stalk chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

In small bowl whisk together Sherry, olive oil and Dijon mustard for dressing. I like the amounts as stated above but my husband prefers it more moist - you can always adjust this part to your liking.

Place chicken, garlic, peppers and celery in a large bowl and toss with dressing. Sprinkle with salt and peeper serve on whole wheat bread for a healthy choice.

Sounds great. I pinned the recipe so I can come back and try it. I love traditional chicken salad, but we have a family member who dislikes mayo, so this would be perfect... and better for all of us anyway. Thanks!

This sounds good. I never thought of putting garlic in chicken salad.

Now I've used garlic in chicken salad (use it is most everything, it seems) but I really like your idea of oil and vinegar added! That one's new to me ...I'll have to try it!
