Chicken Salad for a Crowd

I have made this for bridal & baby showers and the women love it. I serve it on a mini croissant with fancy lettuce. It can also be served on a bed of fancy lettuce greens topped with crispy Chinese style noodles and fresh fruit on the side. Just lovely. When I make it just for the family I wing the amounts (approx. 1/4 to 1/2 chicken breast per person). UPDATE: 8/9/08 Purchasing several rotisserie chickens makes this even MORE tasty! OR be sure to season the water chicken bouillon when simmering the chicken breasts

ingredients

directions

  • Boil the chicken breasts until no longer pink. Cool completely and cube or shred.
  • Peel and mince onion. Can use small to medium size.
  • Clean and thinly slice celery.
  • Combine mayonnaise, half and half, white pepper and Beau Monde. NOTE: *I add enough Beau Monde to see scant color in the mayonnaise, chill and let rest while the chicken is cooling. This will allow the flavors to blend.
  • Combine all ingredients with the chicken and cover and refrigerate over night.
  • Next Morning:

  • Taste test for additional Beau Monde.
  • Add more half & half or milk to thin and make creamier if desired.
  • OPTIONAL: Finely shred iceberg lettuce and add to the chicken mixture. This stretches the amount of chicken salad and makes it lighter in texture.

    I scaled this way down. The half and half really gives this a wonderful texture (makes it less "mayonnaisy." Thanks Chicagoland, for responding to my request for "funeral foods." Roxygirl
