Ingredients
  • 2-3 chicken breasts or equivalent in leftover roasted chicken (dark meat is fine too)
  • 32oz oz chicken broth (only if you don't have chicken pre-made)
  • ⅓ cup red onion, diced
  • ⅓ cup celery, diced
  • ¼ cup pecans, finely chopped
  • ¼-1/3 cup Primal Kitchen Foods mayo
  • pepper, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • garlic powder, to taste
Instructions
  1. If you are cooking the chicken, place in a large pot and cover with chicken broth.
  2. Bring to a boil then turn down to low, cover and simmer for about 1 hour. Chicken is done when it falls apart very easily.
  3. Drain broth and place in large bowl.
  4. If you are using leftover chicken, you can start here. Place chicken in a large bowl and pull apart with two forks until shredded.
  5. Add onion, celery, pecans and spices and mix together with chicken.
  6. Add mayo and mix until fully combined. Start with ¼ cup and add more if you want it to be less dry.
  7. Serve with crackers, celery sticks or sliced cucumber.
