Parrot Head Mama's Note:
I used to get this to-die-for chicken salad at a local deli when I nannied in Chicago. I've since been scouring the net for anything that even RESEMBLES it. Eventually I just gave up and called the deli, begging for the recipe, and they did give it to me. Especially for those "what to cook, it's too damn hot" nights when you're looking for something to make for dinner. Cooking time includes marinating and chilling. Thank you, "Don's Finer Foods" of Lake Bluff, IL!

Units: US | Metric

CREAMY HERB DRESSING

- 5Put them in a large, sealable container with 1/3 of the dressing and marinate in the fridge for a few hours.
- 6Cook on hot grill, but be careful to not OVERCOOK, otherwise all you'll be able to taste is the charred chicken.
