Chicken Salad and the Chocolate Goat

September 26, 2009

Its hard to believe that the half-price chicken sale was only last week, as I have been ripping through my supply that I figured would take me halfway through the winter!  This past week I roasted the whole boiler/fryer that I purchased for the amazingly low price of 84 cents/pound.  Yes, you read that correctly – a young chicken, just over 5 pounds cost me slightly less that $5.  I served up the chicken with steamed green beans from my neighbor’s garden and mashed sweet potatoes.  I fed both my husband and my parents and had leftovers.  Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!

With the leftover chicken, I made some killer chicken salad today for my girlfriends Elissa and Meredith as fuel for our second annual “Chocolate Goat Anniversary Sale Shopping Trip.”  I shredded the chicken, added chopped celery, craisins, slivered almonds, mayonnaise, mustard and some horseradish sauce.  I really love a good chicken salad.  The delectably leftover delicacy was served on toast, in pita pockets, or rolled up in cheese.

And what fuel it was!  We power-shopped the Chocolate Goat, a local specialty shop which carries some of our favorite merchandise, where they were having a store-wide 15% off sale.  As I like to say, we did our part to boost the economy this afternoon.  If you’ve never been to the Chocolate Goat, its a wonderful destination shop that happens to be on the way to my house .  So if you are in the mood for a home-cooked meal and an endorphin rush (a.k.a. wallet dump) feel free to drop by….
