How to Prepare the la madeleine chicken salad ingredients?

We will provide a list of ingredients in the next section of this recipe. Now, you have to start preparing the ingredients to start cooking. Well, it will take about 2 hours to complete the preparation process for your chicken salad. 

First, you have to dice the chicken pieces and put them in a container or plastic bag. After that, use a small bowl to whisk vinegar, garlic, oil, salt, and pepper. After whisking the seasonings, add them to the previously diced chicken. Finally, seal the container or plastic bag and let it chill for 2 hours. You can keep the chicken chill for longer for the seasonings to blend in. Before cooking the salad, arrange the chicken over a baking sheet. 

Mix vinegar, dijon mustard, greek yogurt, and mayonnaise to prepare your dressing. Use a mixing bowl to combine all the ingredients. After preparing the dressing, you are ready to make your chicken salad. 

Ingredients that You Will Need Are:

You need the following ingredients to start cooking this recipe: 

Roasted Diced Chicken: Use 2 cups of roasted diced chicken to prepare the dish. If you want a smoother salad, you can use shredded chicken. 

Green Onions: You will need ¼ cup of diced green onions for the recipe. The onions will reduce the mushiness of the salad and add a crispy texture. 

Celery: ¼ cup of celery is great to add flavors to the salad. 

Dried Cranberries: Dried cranberries contain a lot of antioxidants and vitamins and are a great addition to your chicken salad. You need just a full cup of dried cranberries for this recipe. 

Plain Greek Yogurt: You need a full cup of plain greek yogurt as the dressing. The yogurt will deliver a smooth and creamy texture to the chicken salad. 

Dijon Mustard: Well, adding 1 cup of dijon mustard will act as an emulsifying agent on the salad. It will help vinegar and oil to stay together adding a smooth texture. 

Salt and Black Pepper: Just adding ½ tablespoons of salt and black pepper should do for your recipe. 

Mayonnaise: We have yogurt and dijon mustard, so you need ¼ cup of mayonnaise for the dressing. 

Silver Almonds: Use ½ cups of toasted silver almonds to add a little crunch to your salad.
