Chicken Salad With Herb Mayonnaise

Chicken salad is certainly one of our favorite luncheon dishes, and we almost constantly make a hen salad while we're awaiting noon organization. While the freshly roasted Chicken breasts make an excellent Chicken salad, a rotisserie chook from your nearby marketplace is a wonderfully applicable shortcut, and it's going to taste simply as accurate. Or use roasted turkey breast within the salad.
This Chicken salad takes on extra fresh taste with roasted Chicken breast meat, a bit lemon juice in the mayonnaise, and clean chopped herbs. Serve this pleasant hen salad in sandwiches or in lettuce cups for a scrumptious lunch or mild supper. We love this hen salad in toasted buns with lettuce and tomato slices, and normally serve sandwiches with a side French fries or potato chips.


Ingredients
3 to 4 chicken breast halves (boneless, skin removed)
Salt (to taste)
Black pepper (freshly ground, to taste)
1/2 to 3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon parsley (chopped, fresh)
2 teaspoons chives (chopped, fresh)
1 teaspoon dill (chopped, fresh or about 1/4 teaspoons dried dill weed)
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano or basil (chopped, fresh or about 1/2 teaspoon dried)
3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Line a baking pan with nonstick foil or spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 400 F/200 C/Gas 6.
Arrange the chicken breasts on the baking pan and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake for about 15 minutes.
Turn and continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked but not overcooked. The minimum safe temperature for chicken is 165 F/73.9 C.
Remove the chicken from the oven and let it cool. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, dice, or chop it into small pieces.
Combine 1/2 cup of mayonnaise with the herbs and lemon juice. Mix the mayonnaise mixture with the chopped chicken and add more mayonnaise, as needed, to taste. Stir in salt and pepper, to taste.
Serve the chicken salad in sandwiches or on lettuce or mixed greens with avocado slices or sliced fresh tomatoes. Add chips or French fries for a satisfying lunch or easy light supper. Enjoy!
