The Thai Master Chicken Salad Deluxe
2 lg boned and skinless chicken breasts, baked at 425 for one hour in a pan coated in olive oil, and then shredded after it cools for half an hour
1/2 red onion, minced (leave out when making for your favorite canine)
8 lg radishes, minced
2 Tablespoons dry mustard
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
pepper to taste
OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS- almonds, walnuts or pecans, finely chopped (NOT CANINE SAFE) ; dried cranberries- 1/2 cup of the nuts of your choice and a 1/2 cup of the dried cranberries; Chinese noodles
After the chicken has been completely shredded and fully cooled, mix the red onion, radishes, dry mustard, mayonnaise and pepper together in a medium mixing bowl. Add the shredded chicken. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CANINE FRIEND ENSURED THAT THE CHICKEN IS SAFE ENOUGH TO USE BY ALLOWING A GENEROUS TASTE!
If so inclined, and NOT for canines- add the optional ingredients of your choice.
Chill for at least four hours, overnight is best.
Serve on a bed of lettuce, with cucumber slices, celery, carrots, and add your favorite salad dressing if so desired. Chinese noodles also make a great crunchy addition. Also makes a great sandwich!
