Does anyone else like a little snack in the middle of a Sunday afternoon? I love to make a little something different on football day so no one gets a little too full before dinner. I still like to make something super special for dinner so I keep it light during football season but tasty.
When I was growing up, we lived near Willow Tree in Attleboro Massachusetts and they had the best chicken salad. I loved it because it was a little sweet and when you spooned it with the perfect bun – it was heaven.
Well I don’t live in Rhode Island anymore so I decided to make up my own perfect chicken salad and here it is.
Chicken Apricot Salad
1 whole chicken
2 bay leaves
2 garlic cloves
2 chicken bouillon
The first thing you need to do is place everything in a crock-pot and leave it till it’s done.
½ cup of yogurt
½ cup of mayo
2 Tablespoons of curry powder
½ lime squeezed
Dash of salt and pepper
¼ cup of chopped parsley
Mix well in a bowl.
½ cup of sliced almonds
½ cup of apricots cut into bit size pieces
Toast the almonds in a pan until slightly brown.
Once the chicken is cooked and cooled off cut into bit size pieces into a bowl. Pour the mixture in the bowl along with the almonds and apricots. Taste to see if you need more salt and pepper. I like to put it on top of a cracker or in my lettuce.
Viola your done – enjoy!
