One Year Blog-aversary

HOLY COW!!! I cant believe an entire year has gone by. I have had such a great time finding meals and blogging my adventures. I know in the past few months I havent shared as many adventures and my blogging is slow on the upload but it has been such a great way to share my love of cooking with the ones I love.....and some I dont even know. I have such a backlog of meals waiting to be blogged so I am going to pick something that I really enjoyed for this my one year blogaversary!
Chicken salad.....it has to be chicken salad.

Becky's Chicken Salad
borrowed from All recipes.com


  • 2 1/2 cups diced and chilled, cooked chicken meat
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup sliced, seedless grapes
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds***I used walnuts***
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Directions

    1. In a medium bowl, whip cream to soft peaks.
    2. Combine meat, celery, grapes, nuts, parsley, salt, and mayonnaise with whipped cream. Chill.

    AMAZING, STUPENDOUS, DELICIOUS, PERFECTION.....you get the picture. I had this exact chicken salad in a restaurant and have craved it ever since. I read about 100 chicken salad recipes and was looking for one that incorporated fruit and nuts. I used to think that was an odd choice but it really was so delicious. It is a little "wet" if you dont whip the cream enough. I might try to whip it even more next time too. Its kind of a bad picture because I seriously just couldnt wait to eat it. I used my trusty rotisserie chicken and it was so quick to put together. From now on this is my go to chicken salad recipe.....and I love chicken salad so its awesome to have found such a perfect recipe for me.
