Summer layered Chicken Salad (TNT)

Post by pstarkoski on Tue Aug 17, 2010 5:14 am

Hi...

This salad is fabulous!!

I made a few changes....I didn't use the packaged chicken breast strips....I made my own. I marinated a couple of chicken breasts in Italian dressing for a couple of hours and then broiled the chicken (you could also cook them on the grill). Then I just cut them in slices to put on the salad...

This recipe is a real keeper! and would be beautiful to serve for a luncheon...I didn't bother to layer it in a glass bowl because I just made it for hubby and me...so i just put on plates...still beautiful

Here is picture I took because it was so pretty!
