I was going through my recipe box last week looking for something different (and cool) to make for dinner. I found my recipe for Kiwi Chicken Salad. I had forgotten how good it tastes and how pretty it looks. Enjoy!
4 cups cooked chicken shredded ( I prefer to boil boneless skinless chicken breasts with 1 tsp. of rosemary and a pinch of salt, but you could use any cooked chicken)
1 small green or yellow pepper, chopped
1-11 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup mayonaise (I used light)
3 Tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted (you can see how to toast nuts on this post)
1 T. lemon juice
2 kiwi, peeled, sliced lengthwise and then cut each slice in half
salt and pepper to taste
Cook chicken until very tender. Drain, cool and shred.
Add pepper, oranges, lemon juice, almonds and mayonaise and stir gently. Add kiwi, salt and pepper and mix. Chill until ready to serve. My husband likes his in a sandwich. I prefer mine with a little bit of lettuce and crackers.
