I had some leftover chicken breast to use up and thought I'd try this recipe out. To my surprise, my husband found this in the refrigerator and had eaten most of it up before I got to try it. He normally doesn't like dishes like this, but he really liked this. I liked it too. I only had sliced almonds so I subbed them for the slivered almond and didn't think it would make much of a difference. However, the sliced almonds got kind of lost where I think the slivered almonds would have given it more of a crunch.
This is excellent. I had everything on hand to make this for a quick lunch today. I always have cilantro.... had some left over chicken and viola, made a great lunch. Served with Avocado slices and lemon wedge. Thanks for a great *keeper* Made for ZWT3 ~V
I really liked this. I had some leftover spicy chicken, and this was a very nice use for it. I thought the dressing might taste odd with it and the almonds threw me, but when I was eating it, the flavors all came together nicely. Thank you for a lovely lunch!
We enjoyed this delicious salad on top of some crisp romaine, garnished with tomatoes, avocados and more cilantro. I omitted the sugar because of dietary restrictions, but can't imagine it made any difference. The almonds gave it a great crunch.
I made Fake Rotisserie Chicken and used a lime in the chicken and dried cilantro as my herb of choice. The left over chicken was PERFECT for this recipe. I LOVE cilantro, and chicken salad...and this recipe was sensational! It had the perfect flavor and crunch. I added a couple of sliced grapes to my serving after I'd eaten half of it, because I love seedless white grapes in chicken salad. The recipe doesn't need it, but it didn't hurt the taste either. Thanks so much for one of the most delicious chicken salads that I have ever made!
I would have never thought to put soy sauce in chicken salad! It gave the chicken such a wonderful, unique taste--not overpowering but a nice tang. The only change I made was to use 1 scant teaspoon of Splenda instead of the sugar, since I am watching my carbs. Hubbie ate his chicken on warm, wheat tortillas. We had a side salad to go along with this dish and had a wonderful supper tonight. I will be making this again. Thanks, Parsley!
This was was just too good for words. Simple ingredients that came together into a crunchy and flavorful salad. Loved how the dressing accented the chopped cilantro and almonds. To lighten this up and make it fit the WW Core program I used a combination of 3 parts fat-free mayo and 1 part fat-free sour cream for the regular stuff. (Been doing this so long, I'm not sure what regular tastes like. Counted points for the nuts.) The aromatics here also had the advantage of yielding so much flavor the uninitiated didn't even notice the substitution. We were hungry so chill time was all of 30 minutes. Served this with a cumin scented carrot salad on romaine with alfalfa sprouts. Devine!
Delightful change to traditional chicken salad. It is also excellent without the soy sauce; and with turkey instead of chicken.
A different but delicious salad! My kids and their friend put these in sub rolls with lettuce and pickled banana peppers. Thanks! I made this for the Mexican Salad Challenge.
