This week's food is more of a lunch recipe, but good nonetheless. I first had this chicken salad at one of my baby showers and decided that I had to try it myself. The recipe came from my sister-in-law. Here it is!
5 cups (4 1/2 breasts) of chicken, cooked and chopped
5 tablespoons of oil
2 tablespoons of orange juice
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of salt
1 1/2 cups of sliced grapes
1 1/2 cups of chopped celery
13 ounces of crushed or chunk pineapple, drained
1 can of mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup of slivered almonds
1 1/2 cups of miracle whip
3 cups of cooked rice
Mix well and chill. Yep, that's it. Just mix and chill. And this recipe makes a TON of salad. The bowl above holds just over six cups and I only made half a batch. Eric loves this chicken salad and takes it to work with him all the time.
