    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Elegant luncheon dish. Adapted from Best of the Best of Georgia. If you don't have time to carve out pineapple boats, you can subsitute an 8 1/4 ounce can of crushed pineapple, (drained well) and serve on top of salad greens. Fresh pineapple is much, much better though. There is no actual cook time - it is chilling time.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 fresh pineapple, halved,cored
    • 2 cups cooked chicken breasts, diced
    • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (must be full fat)

      Crush enough of the pineapple flesh to make 1 1/4 cups (use a potato masher or pulse briefly in a food processor)- it should be the consistency of canned crushed pinepple; if there is any extra pienapple flesh, reserve for another use.
    3. 3
      Drain crushed pineapple well over a bowl- save juice for another use.
    4. 4
      Combine chicken with just 1/4 cup of the mayo, the drained crushed pineapple, 1 Tbsp of the amaretto, the salt, nuts, and celery.
    5. 5
      Combine remaining 1/2 cup mayo and 2 Tbsp amaretto (or to taste) in a separate small container; cover and chill overnight.
    6. 6
      Fill pineapple boats evenly with chicken salad mixture, then cover and chill overnight (or at least 6 hours).
    7. 7
      Before serving, pour dressing over each pineapple boat and sprinkle with additional nuts, if desired.
