This is a classic chicken salad recipe. It is simple chicken salad (it does not have nuts, raisins, grapes or any other extras) - with just lots of chicken, a little relish, mayo, and just the right spices. The chicken is cooked in our Ranch Blend and then the salad is spiced with our Poultry Rub. Perfect herbs and spices that come together for a perfectly delicious chicken salad.
POULTRY RUB, Ranch Blend
3 Large, Boneless & Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Tblspn Ranch Blend
1 cup (or more, to taste) Mayonnaise (lite or regular)
2 1/2 Tblspn Dill Relish
2 1/2 tsp Poultry Rub
Sprinkle a tsp of the Ranch Blend on each chicken breast. Cook the breasts in a crock pot (cook on high for 3-4 hours) or in a pressure cooker - e.g. an 'Instant Pot'- (add 1/2 cup of water to the pot, Manual High Pressure, 15 minutes, quick release). Let the cooked chicken cool and then, using two forks, shred the cooked chicken (you should get about 5 cups of shredded chicken). Place the shredded chicken in a large bowl and add the mayonnaise, relish and Poultry Rub. Mix to thoroughly combine. Serve chilled on a sandwich, on a roll, with crackers, or on fresh lettuce leaves.
