Enjoy-Your-Food-Storage Chicken Salad
Do you ever wonder if something truly good can be made from your food storage? Like, so good that if you didn't know it was from food storage you never would have guessed it? Well, the answer is yes. This chicken salad was made at a Shelf Reliance party featuring their Thrive products and it was soo tasty! You don't even have to worry about cooking the chicken if you have Thrive's freeze-dried chicken...
1 1/4 C freeze-dried chopped chicken
1/2 C freeze-dried celery
1/3 C dehydrated minced onion
3 C water
1/2 C mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine chicken, celery, onion, and water in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low; simmer until the mixture is rehydrated. (This should take about 10 minutes.)
2. Pour mixture into a colander and allow to drain for another 10 minutes, then cool in the refrigerator.
3. Combine the cooled chicken mixture with the mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy atop crackers or as part of a sandwich--whatever tickles your fancy!
