Mother's Day Homemade Chicken Egg Yogurt Salad

Dedicated to Grandma Mace.

The Ultimate Mother, may you Rest in Peace. Thank you for sharing your life with us.

Grandma Mace R.I.P. 2000.

To all Mom's like her in the past, present and in the future. We loved you Grandma Mace.

Pre-cook the Chicken

Pre-cook 3 breasts of chicken and dice them up before making the salad.  This can be done several days before making the salad.

The Paradoxical Chicken & Egg Salad.

My Favorite: Recycled Fruit Salad Bowls from the Grocer as my Tupperware.

These Bowls are sold with pre=cut fruit salad.  I save them and use them as Tupperware.  They hold 2 gallons each.

When It Comes to Salads Does It Matter Which Came First; the Chicken or the Egg?

In the video I explain that this recipe originated from a friends grandmother who is now passed. I first tasted it at my sister's bridal shower and I was like Eureka! The chicken and egg in one salad. Brilliant, I thought. I still do to this day. Never again will I be content with just Chicken Salad or just Egg Salad.

To me an artist is a person who can take something mundane make it extraordinary. But it is the Eve of Mother's Day and I don't have all the regular ingredients so I start improvising. If you watch any of my other cooking recipes you will notice I improvise in the kitchen a lot. The analogy used in this Hub is paradoxical as well as I am a Mother making another Mother's Chicken Egg Salad with my own twist. Mother's have a proud tradition of helping each other through time.

Creating homes is an art. Mothers are all artists creating homes out of houses. Exquisite meals out of humble ingredients stirred with a lot of love. In the proud tradition of Grandma Mace I humbly bring you my version of Mrs. Mace's Chicken & Egg salad.

Seems Impossibly Difficult? Not at all!

This is the easiest salad you will ever make and it will really surprise your friends because you can change it the ingredients in what I like to refer to as improvised cooking. Improvised cooking is when you do not have all the ingredients so you add different ones.

In the video I used Cayenne pepper but I usually use black. Cayenne creates the flame and really sets this salad on fire.

It is also fantastic if you add chopped apples/pears and bacon bites or purple grapes and walnuts. I personally like to add advocado.

If I want the salad sweeter I add Visalia onions and cherry tomatoes. Your imagination can make this salad fantastic.

What do I Serve It on or With?

I usually serve it on toasted rye but you can serve it on a bed a Romaine lettuce, tortilla, or inside a halted avocado where the pit was.

On the side I like to serve fresh fibrous fruits.

What about the Fats?

New research has shown the ingestion of healthy fats reduces your cholesterol. It is true that when your body is given two fats, one a bad fat and the other a healthy fat, your body will consume the healthier fat and eliminate the bad fat.

I do not know how to explain this without going into a biochemistry explanation so just know your body needs plant fats to maintain a normal cholesterol. This salad provides plenty of healthy fats.


So I Will Lose Weight Eating This Salad?

If you are middle aged there is no magic bullet. I actually gained eating this salad but thank God my doctor majored in biochemistry. She was very frank that middle aged people need protein for muscle mass and healing however they have to work it off.

I recommend portion control which amounts to two tablespoons on toast or better yet a bed of lettuce.

If you are younger and active then yes, you probably will lose weight if you watch portion control.

Ingredients

7 1/2 Minutes to Assemble the Salad

The salad only takes seven and half minutes to assemble and I have two containers. I apologize to my viewers because I get very nervous on camera as I try to make the food the star. I realize that some of the things I am saying don't make sense as I am talking to you as if you are a dear friend in my home who understands what I am talking about. My son loves to eat the fruit and not the plastic bowls. Nervous! The plastic bowls are free and therefore fantastic but a bit flimsy.

I am not passing gas but trying to get mustard out of the bottle which no professional would have made that mistake. Live, learn and laugh!! I eventually got a knife as I realized it sounds as if I am have terrible gas as I am making the salad. I assure you no gas was passed in the making of this video.

So watch as my dear friend and laugh with me, your very nervous friend, making her novice video. Please do not let it go viral!!!!
