Creamy Chicken Salad
I haven't posted much this week; I've been pretty lazy in the kitchen. Yesterday I made a chicken noodle soup which I totally did not photograph, and today a quick creamy chicken salad which I did photograph. I mention the soup because I took the two chicken breasts from it to make the chicken salad. I put the boiled chicken breasts through a food processor to grind them (I had intended to make croquetas de pollo, but did I mention I've been lazy?) Anyway, it's pretty simple and tasty.
2 cooked chicken breasts passed through a food processor
1/4 cup red onion, thinly chopped
1 celery stalk, thinly chopped
1 small carrot stick, grated
3 to 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise (you can use about 4 ounces of cream cheese and less mayonnaise if you prefer)
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all these ingredients together. That's it!
