Honey-Chicken Pecan Salad
Special thanks to: GB, Searcy, AR Servings: 20 Directions: 4--13 oz. cans Members Mark (Sams) cooked chicken breast or 1--50 oz. can Members Mark cooked chicken breast 2 c. finely chopped celery 6 oz. Ocean Spray Original Craisins (Sweetened Dried Cranberries) 2 c. chopped pecans, toasted 1 1/2 c. (plus) real mayonnaise 1/3 c. (plus) honey 1/4 t. salt 1/4 t. black pepper Drain chicken well--combine first 4 ingredients. Whisk together mayo, honey, salt and pepper. Add to chicken mixture, stirring until combined. Garnish with toasted pecans if desired. Special Notes: I take my hands and shred the chicken in the bowl. I add a little more mayo and a little more honey. Then I take (light colored) buttery croissants (Wal-Mart bakery) and slice them lengthwise (but not all the way through) and fill with the chicken salad. They will keep (covered) for several days in the fridge and still be very good. They do not get soggy. The chicken salad itself will keep for several days in the fridge and still be very good. Can also be served with various types of crackers. The buttery croissants are really delicious with this chicken salad--better than regular bread. Will make around 40 croissant sandwiches. I take these to school and church and everyone loves them.
