Waldorf Chicken Salad

Chris wanted chicken salad for his lunch this week so I figured this would be good. It's quite easy to make and really good. The only thing I forgot was the applesauce, so I just left it out. Maybe next time I'm at the store I'll remember!


 Waldorf Chicken Salad

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
2 marinated chicken breasts, chopped {recipe below}
1/4 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup apples, diced
1/4 cup carrots, shredded
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon tarragon
salt and pepper, to taste

  • In a small pan, add the olive oil and walnuts and toast well. Let the walnuts cool before adding to the salad mixture.
  • Once the walnuts are cooled down, combine all of the ingredients together well. 

Marinated Chicken Breasts:

2 chicken breasts
1 1/2 cup dr. pepper or cola
1/8 cup soy sauce
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon orange juice

  • Combine all of the ingredients and let marinate for up to 2 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put the chicken a sheet pan and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest until cool, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Chop into bite size pieces.
