Honey Chicken Salad Recipe

For our Sip and See shower we served a light lunch of green salad with mandarin orange and candied pecans, a pasta salad, and honey chicken salad in individual pastries (mini pie shells).  See the recipe below, via Southern Living.

Honey Chicken Salad
  • 4 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 3 celery ribs, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Garnish: chopped toasted pecans

Combine first 4 ingredients.

Whisk together mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients. Add to chicken mixture, stirring gently until combined. Place in individual pastry shells for a pretty presentation.

    Chris- I absolutely adore these little parfaits. They look like little baby bottles! I love that you could use almost any colors to create this. Such a great idea.
