    So Mrs. Admin made some chicken salad tonight from the chicken I smoked last night on the Weber Kettle.

    It's so simple, but the smoke flavor in the meat is something entirely different and delicious!

    1/2 cup finely chopped fresh celery
    1/2 cup finely chopped green onion (white and green parts)
    1-2 cups Miracle Whip
    4 cups of smoked chicken (works with turkey too)

    Chop the veggies and put in a medium mixing bowl
    Finely chop the chicken or use a food processor (don't let it go to mush though!)

    Combine all ingredients in the medium mixing bowl and fold together (mixing it might break down the chicken more.

    Here are 2 shots that I got:

    Chicken pulled from last night's smoke:

    That's it!

    Try it sometime with your leftover poultry. It won't disappoint.

    Now I haven't made any yet but we are fat kids and almost always eat the whole darn bird or theres not enough to do anything with. But I'll have to try it cause I do like a good chicken/turkey salad sandwich. ut I use regular mayo.

    we just whipped up some chick salad with our left over smoked chicken from tonight! Inspired by this post earlier while bored at work.

    we use alot of celery, celery seed and fresh garlic in our salad and just pull it off the bone/rough chop so its a little different than yours but im looking forward to lunch tomorrow
