Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad is great any time of the year, but makes a great dinner in the heat of Summer. You can use the same recipe to make tuna salad - just substitute a couple of cans of tuna (drained) for the chicken. I like using a boiled chicken breast, but you could also use canned chicken.
Chicken Salad
1 skinless chicken breast, boiled & cooled
3 eggs, hard boiled, cooled & chopped
3 ribs celery, chopped
2 or 3 heaping tablesoons of Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Remove chicken from bone and shred. Combine all ingredients in an air-tight container. Mix well, adding a little more salad dressing or salt/pepper until seasoned to your taste. Chill 2 hours before serving. (NOTE-If you use boiled chicken rather than canned, add a little salt & pepper to your cooking water.)

I never thought of adding egg to my chicken salad. What a novel idea.
