Smoked Chicken Salad

I was with Carol Parker today on KSN and did a smoked chicken salad recipe that's really good. Sunny Lane Farms sells fully cooked smoked chicken that's perfects for this recipe.

Smoked Chicken Salad

1 smoked chicken
1 half lemon
2 tablespoons minced parsley
2 tablespoons minced chives
8 oz mayonnaise
Garlic powder to taste
Salt & pepper to taste

Remove skin and debone chicken, keeping dark meat separate. Rough chop white meat. Pulverize dark meat in a blender.

Add lemon, parsley, and chives. Mix in mayonnaise little at a time until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

I forgot to take the garlic salt to the studio, but I didn't think we needed it. I also added red seedless grapes cut in half which added a nice burst of sweetness. I would have included a photo of this because it's quite pretty, but the KSN folks snarfed it all up!

The market is open this Friday from 11 to 2 and Sunny Lane will be there.
