Chicken Salad Chick Jalapeno Holly Recipe

Equipment:

  • large pot
  • hand mixer or food processor (for shredding the chicken)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins (yields about 2 cups of shredded chicken; can also use rotisserie chicken or chicken breast)
  • 3/4 cup Duke's mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sliced pickled jalapeños (adjust to taste, as spice levels vary by brand)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • a pinch of black pepper (to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the chicken tenderloins, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F or shreds easily. Avoid overcooking to prevent the chicken from becoming rubbery.
  2. Take the chicken out of the water and let it cool down. Shred the chicken into fine pieces using a hand mixer or food processor. Aim for a creamy-like texture similar to Chicken Salad Chick's.
  3. Add the sliced pickled jalapeños in a food processor until finely diced, or chop them by hand if preferred.
  4. In a bowl, combine the shredded chicken, mayonnaise, sour cream, diced jalapeños, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  5. Taste the salad and adjust the seasoning or jalapeños to your liking. Serve right away or chill to let the flavors blend.

A few tips:

1. Serve Chicken Salad Chick Jalapeno Holly in various dishes such as grilled meats, salads, sandwiches, and wraps, as a topping for potatoes, or a dip for a delicious snack or appetizer.

2. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
