Chicken and Pineapple Salad

Chicken and Pineapple Salad has ladies luncheon written all over it. I’m sure this recipe was cut out for a guild meeting, or a spring kickoff affair as the articles is titled, “Salads for 15-50″.

The recipe calls for a gallon of chicken, which kinda grosses me out. Is that really a fair measurement for meat? Regardless, I cut this recipe down to a fourth as I’m not hosting any ladies luncheons this week and we would all be over it before we finished the whole gallon! Feel free to do the same.

2 qt pineapple*

2 qt. diced celery

Stir the chicken, green onions, mayonnaise, salt and pepper together then refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Add the celery and pineapple just before serving in iceberg lettuce cups with a dash of paprika on top.

*The recipe calls for canned pineapple but I think the sweetness of a fresh pineapple would be much better!

**Also, if you’re going to cut this recipe into fourths…there are 4 cups in a quart and 16 cups in a gallon.

Chopped chicken. I cooked chicken breast ahead and let it cool but a de-boned roast chicken would be tasty as well.

It’ll look a lot like this so you’ll have to fancy it up before serving. Lettuce cups work, or you can make this a croissant sandwich!

This looks pretty but now I’m wondering why I didn’t go with the croissant idea. Yum!
