Chrein Chicken Salad


This recipe is great for using up the chicken from your Seder night chicken soup. No one will complain about eating “leftovers.” My best trick? Cut up the chicken pieces when no one is looking. This way, they don’t have to know it lived its first life in your soup!


Prepare the Chrein Chicken Salad


In a large, dry skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds for five to eight 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.
