Another fantastic family recipe! This recipe is my mother-in-law’s (I call her Mama D) go-to chicken salad recipe and I can see why. Thomas always used to tell me his mom made the best chicken salad. Now that I’ve tried it for myself, I must say he is VERY right! She loads it up with all the flavor and all that green onions gives it the best taste. I am obsessed! This will be another recipe that will be sticking around our household as well! Here it is!
-3 chicken breasts
-1/4 cup chicken stock
-lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
-fresh or dried parsley
-1 celery stalk & the celery heart (the small little stalks inside the celery with the leaves) -5 green onions, chopped
-1/2-1 cup grapes, sliced (up to you how many you like)
-mayonnaise (1/3-1/2 cup)
-full fat plain greek yogurt (1/3-1/2 cup)
-sea salt & pepper
In a crockpot, add in the chicken breasts, chicken stock, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper, & fresh or dried parsley. Cook on low for about 4 hours or until cooked through and shreds easily.
Once chicken is cooked, remove from crockpot and juices, let cool. Shred or cut chicken however you like yours in your chicken salad. In a large mixing bowl, add in the chicken, celery, green onions, & grapes. Add salt & pepper, to taste. Add in the mix of mayo & yogurt. Everyone likes a different amount of creaminess on their chicken salad so use it to your liking, but should be about a 1:1 ratio of mayo to yogurt. Add more salt or pepper if needed! Stir it up until incorporated! Tastes best the next day or after a few hours of the flavors marinating together! Enjoy friend!
