Buffalo and Blue Cheese Chicken Salad
From Cook's Country
With so many ways to kick up the flavor of a simple chicken salad recipe, why do so many versions still feature a sloppy, stodgy mess of mayo and underseasoned chicken? For our flavor-packed Buffalo and Blue Cheese Chicken Salad recipe, we found that sautéed boneless, skinless chicken breasts produced better flavor than the poached chicken most chicken salad recipes require. To create a distinctly flavored chicken salad recipe, we replaced some of the mayonnaise with blue cheese salad dressing. And to lighten the texture of the dressing, we added potent hot sauce. This revamped dressing was less thick, so it didn’t weigh the chicken down.
Makes about 6 cups, enough for 6 sandwiches
Serve this spicy chicken salad on soft onion rolls. Use a mild hot sauce (like Frank's) here.
