Default Lazy Me Chicken Salad - at least 3 ways!

1 rotisserie chicken
1/2 c. Duke's mayonnaise
1/4 - 1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 - 1 c. finely chopped celery
1/4 - 1/2 c. chopped scallions, use the green tops and the little onion part
salt to taste
freshly ground pepper

Remove meat from the rotisserie chicken while it's still very warm. Gently mix the remaining ingredients with the chicken. Refrigerate in tightly covered container.

You now have chicken salad for lunch or dinner, BUT you also have the work all done for two more yummy entrees.

Chicken salad cassarole (for one or many)

Spray a small cassarole dish with Pam. Add a generous layer of chicken salad and cover with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted and the cassarole bubbles. I make this for my lunch in one of those little 4-6 oz. ramekins.

Chicken and Broccoli (or spinach or cauliflower)

You want to slightly undercook the broccoli or cauliflower and drain spinach to use in this recipe.

Spray a cassarole dish with Pam. Lay broccoli spears (microwaved, steamed or left-over) in the bottom of the dish. Top with a generous layer of chicken salad and cover with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees til the cheese melts and the cassarole is beginning to bubble.

A green vegetable, a salad makes this a family meal. These were my go-to recipes when my children were at home, and I needed dinner in a hurry. Non-Atkin's diners may like a side of rice - long grain and wild mix - is especially good with this.

Cool Carb Count - Lazy Me Chicken Salad

Okay, let's see:

Rotisserie chicken - skin removed - 1 carb per 3 oz.
mayonnaise - 0
celery - .8 per rib
sour cream - .6 per tablespoon

There are 16 tablespoons in a cup, so your carb count will vary depending on how much sour cream you used (1/2 c. 4.8 carbs; 1/4 c. 2.4 carbs), the number of celery ribs, and the amount of chicken you use. You probably had 6 - 8 oz. of chicken once you got it off the bone.

The chicken salad I made has very close to 7 carbs for the entire recipe. I have enough when I make this for 4 - 5 generous servings.

Approximately 2 - 3 net grams carbs per serving?

Anybody else get a better count?

Enjoy!
