I can remember watching mom grind the chicken with her mixer. It was really loud. I have not had her chicken salad for years so when I got a grinder attachment for my KitchenAid for Christmas I knew what I wanted to make first! I used the course disk on my grinder to get the right consistency.
Once your meat is ground you must add it to the other ingredients and mix it up. I use my hands at this point because it is faster and I think it does a better job.
I've enjoy my homemade chicken salad by itself, on sandwich bread or like I did here with melted cheese on a toasted english muffin. This chicken salad is perfect for showers and teas. It has a smooth consistency with all the flavor and fits perfectly on a cracker, in a piece of endive or on a crostini.
What is one of your Mom's recipes that you remember from your childhood you want to make yourself?
