Notes

\Cucumber sizes vary, so be sure to get one at least 15 inches long, or 2 smaller ones.

Ingredients

  • ½ Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ Teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons hot sauce
  • ½ Cup Kraft mayonnaise
  • ¼ Cup blue cheese crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh chopped chives
  • 3 Cups diced or shredded chicken breast
  • 2 large seedless cucumbers sliced into 1” pieces, with half of their centers scooped out (15-20 slices)
  • ¼ Cup chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Directions

Combine all ingredients except the chicken and cucumbers in a medium-size bowl. Stir in chicken and mix until well coated. Set aside in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and spoon equal amounts (about 1-2 teaspoons) into each cucumber slice. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Chicken Salad Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Salad Cooking Tip

Legs take longer than breasts to cook. For more consistent results, mark the chicken on the grill and then finish cooking them in an oven.

Chicken Salad Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfnadel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken.
