Marguerite’s Creole Chicken Salad

This is hands-down, by far the best chicken salad ever. It has everything you’ve ever dreamed of that should be in a chicken salad. From the ‘usual’ celery to creole mustard, to horseradish, this is nothing but delicious. I’m not usually even a fan of horseradish but it really, really works in Marguerite’s Creole chicken salad.

Marguerite's Creole Chicken Salad

I brined a few bone-in chicken breasts using my usual technique, substituting a few tablespoons of creole seasoning for the oregano.I then roasted the chicken on my Big Easy oil-less fryer. The chicken, as always, came out perfectly tender and juicy, just right for Marguerite’s Creole chicken salad. You can of course substitute any cooked chicken you’d like.

This recipe comes from Marguerite at Cajun Delights, my favorite place for all thing Cajun, from food to music.
