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.
