SOLSC #19: A delish recipe!

Growing up, my family never made chicken salad...but let's be real, if they did, I would probably not have eaten it. Apparently I used to be really picky. Well, that's what my mom says anyways.

Somewhere along the way I got a recipe for chicken salad and I made it today after work. So I thought I would share with all of you! And I took pics!

Here's what you need to do:

1. Chop up some celery (you need to use a food processor).

2. Chop up some grilled chicken in the food processor and add it to the celery.

 3. Then add some dried cranberries.

4. And some chopped green onion.

5. Now here's the unhealthy stuff: you need to use some mayo as the base. Put some in. Start with a little and then add more if you want to. This was actually too much, but I still ate it. Also, use olive oil, too. If you don't use enough of this stuff, it will be too dry (that's what happened last time).

6. Finally, spice it up with basil, salt, and pepper.

7. And then serve it with pita chips or on some bread of some sort!

Anyways, I had the chicken already grilled from yesterday so it was a pretty quick recipe and it was delicious!

I know this is a literacy blog, so as a stretch, this is kinda like functional text, right? Like following directions? That, and a great appetizer to take to your next social gathering. If you try it out, lmk what you think!

Do you have any great recipes to share? That's all for me today!


  1. I love the combination of chicken and cranberries. I think I will have to go shopping to get the ingredients! Thanks for sharing your functional text.

  2. Sounds savory! Thanks!

  3. Yum - this looks absolutely delish! I've never thought of adding basil - great tip!

  4. How- to writing at its finest!

  5. This sounds yummy and quick! My kind of recipe! Thanks!

  6. You had a really great recipe! It looks so yummy and a lot of us want to try it now - our stomachs are grumbling! :) Maybe we can get the ingredients to try it too!

    Also, do you remember where you found the recipe? We are curious to know!

  7. Your recipe is so good, maybe you could visit our class sometime and teach us how to make this! That would be really cool!

    We liked how you put your ingredients in order AND with pictures, so we knew what to do and not to get all mixed up.

    Thanks for the post; it was TOP-NOTCH!
