With the leftover chicken Ed made on the smoker, I made one of my favorite Chicken Salad recipes from Provence Breads and Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee.
7 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used the leftover ones from yesterday)
Salt & Pepper
2 pinches cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon lavender
1 lemon, juiced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 cup sliced roasted almonds
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 bunch celery, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons chives
2 tablespoons chopped tarragon leaves
DRESSING (Mix all ingredients together in seperate bowl)
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
Salt & Pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Clean the chicken thoroughly. Sprinkle salt, pepper, cayenne, lavender, lemon, and garlic on chicken. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let chicken cool, and then pull it into small strips.
Put pulled chicken into a large bowl and add roasted almonds, onions, celery, dressing, and herbs. Mix well.
Serve by itself or on a sandwich.
