My love for chicken salad is strong. I have had long, deep, meaningful discussions about chicken salad. And not just once. It comes up in conversations often. It makes me happy. And I'm all about being happy.
I really loved the texture of this chicken salad. Between the crunch of the peanuts and the celery and the sweet juiciness of the oranges, it was fantastic.
I ate a lot. I ate 2 of these. They were that good.
Be happy. Make chicken salad.
