Your chicken salad is bound to taste better when served in a fresh fruit bowl! Give your guests a treat at your next party with this fruity yet savory recipe!
Serving size: 10
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 2 stalks of scallions (green onions)
- 1 French cucumber or ½ American cucumber
- 6 oranges (I used naval oranges)
- ¼ cup mayonnaise (I used Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise, which is made from rice vinegar, giving it a slightly sweeter taste. Although I’m not an advocate of mayonnaise, a dallop a day never did anyone any harm!)
- Bring water to a boil in a large pot and drop in the chicken breasts. Boil until fully cooked.
- While the chicken’s boiling, chop scallions into miniscule bits and the cucumber into tiny triangular bits. Place the chopped scallions and cucumber into a mixing bowl.
- Cut each orange in half. Then, cut along the inside edge with a knife and use a spoon to scoop out the fruit. Pour out the juice and scraps into a small bowl (you’ll need it later!).
- Cut the orange into small pieces.
- Once the chicken is ready, chop it into tiny pieces and place in the mixing bowl with your greens. Sprinkle in some salt and pepper.
- Place the orange scraps into a tea strainer and press against it with a spoon to release the juice into the mixing bowl.
- Pour the orange pieces and mayo into the mixing bowl and mix well. Fill your orange bowls with the salad.
I added some chopped avocado to one of the bowls and it tasted great! Get creative!
