Mandarin Chicken Salad
*as always, if you are making this as a gluten free recipe check your ingredients to ensure gluten free status! I have brands I am very loyal to, but I still check every time I buy a new container to ensure nothing has changed on the ingredient list.
1 to 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
10 to 12 oz can mandarin oranges
1 can crushed pineapple (or chunked)
1 Tbs miracle whip
walnut pieces (optional)
-Boil chicken for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken. It should be completely cooked through when you're done! Drain and cool the chicken enough to handle.
-Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces, and throw in a big bowl.
-Reserving the juices, drain the fruit and add the fruit to the chicken.
-Stir the juices with the miracle whip until well mixed.
-Add the juices to the fruit and chicken, throw in walnuts if you want, and cover. Throw in the fridge until ready to serve!
This meal is great served over cold lettuce, or (like we serve most everything) over white rice! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, it's a well loved recipe in our house!
