Chicken Salad and Crackers

A few years back a company started creating these single serve cans of chicken and put it in a packet with a little mayonnaise and seasoning  and some crackers.  My husband and I LOVED these!  We could add how much of each we wanted and they were really tasty!  Well, the only single serve chicken salad cans we can find now are premade chicken salad- yuck.  So, here is what I make at home instead.  I really prefer store canned chicken for chicken salad but you can use a similar amount of leftover cooked chicken as well.

Husband’s  Chicken Salad

1 small can chicken (the tunafish sized cans), drained

1 tsp Miracle Whip (he prefers it but when I make it  he gets Hellmans Mayo)

salt and pepper to taste

Combine all in a bowl with a fork, breaking up the chicken as much as you can.  If you’re using leftover chicken, cut it up small or shred it.  Serve on butter crackers or made into a sandwich on white bread.

Wife’s Chicken Salad

1 small can chicken

1-2 Tbl Hellmans Mayonnaise or Kraft Real Mayonnaise

1/4 – 1/2 tsp dill weed or dill mix (I love Pampered Chef and Tastefully Simple brands)

A splash of lemone juice

dash of salt

2-3 dashes of pepper

Combine well with a fork as for Husband’s Salad.  Serve on hearty wheat crackers or whole wheat bread.

If you need to stretch your chicken a little bit you can add some finely diced celery and/or some finely chopped hard- boiled egg and a little extra mayo.
