About this recipe: A relatively substantial chicken salad. Cooked chicken is tossed with mayonnaise, celery, pine nuts, lemon juice, pickle, black pepper and chilli. Serve with fresh bread. Perfect for the summer months.
This is my recipe and I find the calorie count a little shocking. I've tried to research and so far I've come up with a TOTAL for the WHOLE recipe of only 663 calories. So how do they come up with 459 Calories per SERVING? I use only the chicken breast, no skin, a salad dressing of 40 cal per Tbsp, sweet relish has only 15 cal per Tbsp......? I would also like to say ThankYou for your kind reviews. That is the minimum jalapeno I add, often it is a LOT more . Today I used chopped pecans (pine nuts are expensive here too!) I think just about any nut meat would work. - 13 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Fixed as written and it was very good. I think I would add some of the juice from the jar of jalapeno peppers to add more heat. I also think that roasting the pine nuts would bring out the nutty flavor of the pine nut. As it was written, the pine nuts added a wonderful texture to the salad. Will definately fix again with these few tweaks! - 31 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy! Great textures and flavor. I added an extra 1/2 jalepeno for an additional kick and served on lettuce leaves with tomato. - 01 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
