Chrein Chicken Salad

Use up your leftover chicken in a unique and tasty way!
Serves 4


2 cups cooked chicken, cut into small chunks
1 hard boiled egg, cut into tiny pieces, optional
2 stalks celery, diced
1 scallion, diced
1 small carrot, peeled and shredded
4-6 tablespoons mayonnaise + 2 tablespoons chrein, mixed together
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup crushed almonds, toasted first


In a large, dry skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds for 5-8 minutes until lightly browned. Turn off the heat.
Place the cut chicken pieces, egg, celery, scallion and shredded carrot into a large bowl. In another small bowl, mix together the “chreiyonnaise”, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Pour this over the chicken mixture and mix it together well, by hand.
Add in the toasted almonds and serve in scoops over a piece of lettuce, with a cherry tomato in its center.
