- half whole cooked chicken or turkey (~2lbs)
- half cup apple, peeled and chopped (optional)
- half cup onion, chopped (I like red, scallions are also good)
- 2-3 stalks celery, chopped (or .5 cup)
- half cup pecans, chopped (optional)
- half tsp low sodium salt
- half tsp Lemon Garlic
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
Mix together, 4 Tbsp. chili powder, 1 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano, 2 tsp each paprika and cumin, 4 tsp low sodium salt, and 1/8-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes. Add 1 cup olive oil and half cup rice vinegar
First cook up a whole chicken. You can buy a rotisserie chicken, or do what I do, throw a chicken in the crockpot, sprinkle it with cumin, low sodium salt & pepper and let it cook for about 4-6 hours on low.
After the chicken is cooked and cooled, de-bone and shred the meat (white and dark) and put it in a large mixing bowl. I usually use about half of my 3-4lb chicken.
Then do a bunch of chopping. Peel your apple, then chop your apple, onions, celery, and pecans.
Combine all of these ingredients in the bowl with your chicken and then start adding the dressing. You want enough to cover all the ingredients and make them moist, but not overly runny or dry.
Add the low sodium salt and pepper, and lemon juice Stir well to combine. Add dressing.
