Copycat Chicken Salad Chick Buffalo Barclay Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad. Recently I tried the Buffalo Barclay at Chicken Salad Chick. A delightful Buffalo Chicken Salad that not over spicy. However, I have suggestions if you would like to kick it up a notch if you like it hot and spicy. This recipe is low carb, depending on how you eat it. Plain as as scoop, low carb, as a sandwich, not low carb!

Ingredients:

I rotisserie chicken, skin off and deboned

1/2 cup mayonnaise

5 Tablespoons sour cream

5 Tablespoons Buffalo Wing Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s) or for a spicier taste, use Franks RedHot Wing Sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

1 cup chopped celery

Place chicken in your stand mixer. Use your mixer to shred the chicken. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. For low carb, eat as is or make a salad and use ranch dressing for a drizzle. Or enjoy as a sandwich. I think you will find this recipe delicious. Enjoy!

When you are not home and without your Kitchen Aid, I use kitchen shears to shred chicken.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the dressing ingredients. In a separate bowl, add ingredients for dressing and mix well. Add to chicken salad and combine. This is great on a sandwich, eaten as is or made into a big salad, recipe below.

Fruity Freida Chicken Salad

I must confess, I am obsessed with Chicken Salad Chick. I love chicken salad and this is a new addition to my lineup of chicken salad recipes. Fruity Fran is one of my favorites. I can’t call this a copycat because I do not know what CSC’s secret seasonings are. However, my Fruity Freida is a yummy distant relative of Fruity Fran.

Ingredients:

1 rotisserie chicken

1 cup of celery, chopped fine

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon Montreal Chicken Seasoning (found in the spice isle)

1 teaspoon paprika

2 cups Large red seedless grapes sliced in half

1 can pineapple tidbits, drained

3 Chopped Fuji Apples, dipped in lemon juice or lemon lime soda (I used soda)

Apples soaking in lemon lime soda before I add it to the chicken salad.

Placed deboned rotisserie chicken in mixing bowl. Mix on low until chicken is finely shredded. Chicken Salad Chick chicken salads are finely shredded and very creamy. You can shred chicken to your liking and add more or less of the mayonnaise/sour cream mixture. Add finely minced celery and combine. Blend in mayonnaise, sour cream, Montreal Chicken Seasoning and paprika. Stir in grapes, pineapple tidbits and apples.

Serve on a bed of lettuce, make a lettuce wrap, a delicious sandwich or serve on a croissant. Anyway you choose, it’s fabulously delicious. Enjoy!

Chicken Waldorf Pita Sandwich


I love chicken salad. I also love and miss my Mom’s Waldorf Salad. I thought it would be great to combine these two.  I can’t begin to tell you how tasty this was. Brilliant!  I used pita bread. You can use any bread or bun or croissant you want but I truly forgot how great pita bread was. I used to eat it a long time ago and forgot how delicious it really was. If you have never tried it, go for it. 


This is the pita bread I used for my sandwich. I was a little hesitant to buy this because it sounded too healthy to taste good. I was wrong.  Really wrong. It’s delicious and I will buy it again. 


Ingredients:

Both breasts of a rotisserie chicken, shredded in bite size pieces, I used Sam’s Club rotisserie chicken and it was about 4 cups shredded

 2 apples, chopped into bite size pieces, I used Braeburn which are large apples, if you use small or medium size, add another apple or two

3/4 cups walnuts, chopped

 1 cup celery, chopped

1 lemon, juiced*

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

3/4 cup sour cream

1 cup mayonnaise 

Season to taste

Lettuce leaves or spinach leaves, optional

Sliced tomatoes, optional

Pita bread, cut in half


Place shredded chicken, nuts and celery in a medium size bowl.  In another bowl, juice lemon and add the chopped apple. The lemon will prevent it from turning brown and add a zesty taste. Once you have tossed your apples in the lemon juice, add the brown sugar, sour cream, mayonnaise and blend. Add this dressing/apple mixture to the the chicken mixture in the other bowl.  Season to taste. Fill pita half with your Chicken Waldorf Salad. Add a lettuce leaf or spinach leaves to your pita. Enjoy!


*Place your room temperature lemon in the microwave for 11 seconds. It will yield more juice. 

Aloha Chicken Salad

  

Would you like to have lunch in Hawaii?  Me too!  I have used some of Hawaii’s best flavors to create a delicious chicken salad. Enjoy it on a sandwich, on a  bed of lettuce or a lettuce cup. It’s delicious. You will be doing the hula dance after tasting this!  

  
Chicken Salad:

1 rotisserie chicken, I buy mine at wholesale clubs, they are bigger by a pound and less expensive

3 stalks of celery, sliced

3  green onions, sliced with kitchen shears, green and white parts

1 cup of macadamia nuts, rough chopped

1 cup of pineapple tidbits, drained

Take the skin off of the chicken and chop into bite size pieces. Add the other ingredients and mix well.

Lime Cilantro Dressing:

3/4 cup mayonnaise 

3/4 cup sour cream

2 Tablespoon of fresh cilantro, optional if you hate it!

Juice of 1 lime

Season with salt and pepper to taste 
In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise and sour cream. Mix in cilantro. Microwave you lime for 15 seconds in the microwave (this will make the juice pour out of it)  Add the juice of the lime and combine. Add to chicken salad and toss to combine. Enjoy on a sandwich, wrap, lettuce cup or just with a fork!  Aloha!

  

Southern Belle Chicken Salad Sandwich


I love chicken salad. I make it often. I don’t always eat it a sandwich but when I created this recipe, I decided to put a Southern spin on it. The corn English muffins add a great taste detail to this fried chicken salad sandwich. Please enjoy my Southern Belle Chicken Salad Sandwich.

Ingredients:
3 cooked and fried (or baked with a breading), I used store bought at the deli, cut into bite size pieces
1 green onion, cut with kitchen shears, green and white parts
1/4 cup Craisins
1 celery stalk, sliced into pieces
1/4 – 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup honey mustard, or use Dijon if you prefer
1/4 cup mayonnaise, or more to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste, I used about 1/2 teaspoon each
Corn English Muffins, toasted, I used Thomas’s

In a bowl, mix the above ingredients except the English Muffins. Depending on how large your tenders are, you may need to adjust the measurements on the mayonnaise and honey mustard. The tenders I used were about four inches in size. After toasting the muffin, build your sandwich. Add lettuce and tomato if you wish, or just eat it on your toasted Corn English Muffin. This was a really good and different sandwich. Have it for lunch or dinner, would be perfect with a bowl of soup. Makes 4 – 6 sandwiches. Enjoy!
