Summertime Smoked Chicken Salad
Summertime Smoked Chicken Salad

I started out with a 5lb chicken and sprayed it down with extra virgin olive oil and seasoned it with salt and pepper...

I tossed it on the WSM along with some moink balls and let it cook until the internal temp in the thigh was just over 170 degrees...

I separated the light meat from the dark and ran the dark meat through my meat grinder...

I cut the white meat into cube chunks...

I squeezed the juice of one lemon over the chicken, added parsley, chives, garlic powder, salt, and pepper along with enough mayo to get the chicken salad to the consistency I perfer...

I mixed it all up and put it in a container and let it sit in the fridge overnight...

Money shot...

Today for lunch, I served myself a chicken salad sandwich on french bread with a healthy dose of Cool Ranch Doritos and a glass of my homebrewed Hefeweizen...

Once again, thanks to all ye farkers for helping me get started in the world of low and slow with charcoal :)

I love chicken salad.
I love smoked chicken.


Why didn't I think of this?

Great recipe JM!

The smoke on this chicken is just about perfect. I only put two chunks of hickory in the WSM. The seasonings and lemon juice come through nicely and don't overpower the smoke, while the smoke isn't overpowering anything either...

The most simple recipe I have seen for chicken salad and by far the one that looks the tastiest!
