El Granada Chicken Salad Simple and Delicious!
I gave my brother a Camarons stove top smoker, for Christmas. What an ingenious, delicious little device that we both can never live without now. OK, OK, so there is a learning curve and our first 3 attempts turned out to be jerky (though it was very Delicious pork chop jerky!). Now we’re really getting into it and our success factor has sky rocketed rather quickly. On a whim I decided to to put a new twist on a Southwestern chicken salad, I had recently at Chili’s.
Our version of the chicken salad, centers on marinading the skinless chicken breast in McCormick GrillMates, Citrus flavored. We followed the suggestion on the back of the package, by adding a quarter cup of freshly squeezed lime juice, one quarter cup of freshly squeezed OJ and a fist full of fresh cilantro.
Next I allowed to set over night in the refrigerator. We removed this delicious concoction from the refrigerator 1 hour before cooking. Finally we smoked it over apple wood for 30 minutes. It came out of the smoker almost cooked. This was my plan and I finished the chicken breast off in George Foreman. The George Foreman, makes the breasts look “pretty”. Had someone not actually watched the process they would have assumes I cooked it outside on the grill.
