Last night we had barbecue chicken cooked on the grill. It was perfect grilling weather. Nothing fancy, just a pepped up bottled sauce (my hubby did the sauce). When we have left over chicken of any kind I love to make chicken salad from what's left over. We had a lot of left overs, and my absolute favorite is chicken salad made from leftover BBQ chicken!
Ingredients for the Chicken salad (all these are general measurements I just winged it)
About 4 boneless chicken breasts barbecued out on the grill and chopped into nice sized chunks
1 cup of mayo (don't use low fat mayo, it would just be wrong)
2 tsp walnut oil
A dash of celery seed
A dash of tarragon
A dash of salt and pepper
A handful or so of cut up grapes
A bit of chopped sweet onion
Mix all together and put it in the fridge.
1 Cup of warm water
2 TBS of butter
3 1/4 cups of flour
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp of quick-acting active dry yeast or bread machine yeast.
Put the ingredients into your bread machine in the order given. I forgot to take a picture of the water, that goes first, sorry. Then the butter and so on.
Make sure you have a little dent in the top of your mound of ingredients for the yeast.
Set your machine on the dough setting, then press the button. Go do your nails or eat some chocolate. It will take about an hour. Have I told you how much I love bread machines? Well I do, I love them!
When your dough is ready, lay it out onto a piece of floured parchment paper and make into a rough rectangular shape.
Cut the rolls out to a nice size. I like to use a pizza cutter, it makes it a lot easier.
You should be able to get about 15 to 18 rolls from one batch. Pinch the rolls into a nice shape. and brush with melted butter.
Cover with a clean towel and let the rolls rise for 30 minutes.
Cook at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
What could be better then homemade rolls and chicken salad?
