    Dilly Chicken Salad

    Chicken salad with dill is just a summertime classic…ideal for a lunch at the pool, a picnic, dinner on the deck. Not only does dill taste like spring and summer to me, I always think of the first time I had chicken salad with dill. It was at Cafe Hon in Hampden. I know lots of people go for their comfort food, but for me, that chicken salad with the dill vinaigrette, it’s the only thing I’ve ever ordered. Don’t have any chicken?

    Curry Chicken Salad

    Curry chicken salad…a marriage of my deep love of Indian food and good chicken salad. This builds on my classic chicken salad recipe with a few Indian twists. While deep in chicken salad recipe development a few weeks ago, I had a craving on my curry version, but not sure Jeff would like it, I still made a traditional one for him. Surprise! The person who claims not to like Indian food couldn’t get enough of this salad! Don’t have any chicken?

    Chicken and Biscuit Kabobs

    I love coming up with fun lunches for my family on the weekends. Inspiration struck in the form of a question. What are their true fav foods and can I put it on a stick? Enter the chicken and biscuit kabob! I toyed around with making homemade chicken nuggets, but decided to keep it simple and just use frozen chicken nuggets and refrigerated biscuits. Guess what takes these over the top? Honey butter! I have never seen Dashiell and Ridgely eat so quickly, raving the whole time about how good these are. Both of them came back for seconds!

    Classic Chicken Salad

    Chicken salad is one of those dishes, that when done right, is food perfection. While I love creating variations of the classic, this simple list of ingredients translates into sublime chicken salad. The creaminess of this salad, which puts whole Greek yogurt in the starring role with sour cream and mayonnaise as the supporting players is so much lighter and more delicious than a chicken salad laden with mayo. A quick lunch, a light dinner…I love opening my fridge door and seeing lots of choices for healthy meals! Don’t have leftover chicken breasts? Try my recipe for perfect poached chicken everytime.
