Chicken Deviled Egg Salad


Who doesn't love Chicken Salad and Egg Salad!!! There are foods that I have craved after giving up gluten and chicken salad was one of those! Although, this version is served in eggs, it was a great lunch and the our kids loved to snack on them through the week. Chicken salad is a great source of protein, and full of omega 3's and 6's, which are essential fatty acids building blocks that the body needs. This recipe is great for lunch dinner, or a snack! Just make sure to double up this recipe, it is sure to disappear fast!



Ingredients:

  • 4 cups diced poached chicken,
  • 1 teaspoons of fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of honey Dijon mustard, plus one teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, plus one tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup thinly diced celery
  • 2 green onions diced
  • Dash paprika
  • 7 eggs


Directions:


  • Fill a sauce pan with water and add 7 eggs. Boil eggs for 10 minutes to 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Run under cool water and peel shells, and slice length wise. In a small bowl spoon egg yolks, 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, paprika and 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard. Mix thoroughly, as you would deviled eggs. 

  • Dice chicken, celery, green onions and dill. Toss in a medium sized bowl, and add Mayonnaise, Dijon, lemon, salt and pepper. Stir in egg mixture, and spoon into the hard boiled eggs. 
Serve and enjoy!

    2. wow perfect recipe its easy fast and " normal" my family is just switching to paleo and for now are eating things like paleo fish sticks w/ carrots and 'ranch' and garlic butter hot wings w/ more carrots and "ranch" for lunch. As we are trying to stick to food that seems normal to us as much as possible until us are used to the change over. this fits right in.
