Make It Monday: Beyond the Grave Chicken Salad

Is it Tuesday already?! Sorry we're being awful bloggers! Let's get back on schedule!

So we spent Monday hanging out at my parents house. I spent the a great part of my day in the kitchen making some amazing chicken salad! I am so excited to share this recipe with you!

This is what we're having for lunch the rest of the week! It's awesome!

 I wanted to hang the recipe card in front of me and the only magnetic surface I could find was the cabinet hinge! The downside to stainless steel appliances...

Ok so here's the recipe where you can actually read it...

First- 5 lbs chicken breast, 1 onion quartered, 2 chicken bouillon cubes, 1 tsp parsley
Dressing- 1/2 cup Italian dressing, 1 cup mayo, 1 tbsp white vinegar, 1/2 tsp celery salt, 2 tbsp sugar, 1/8 tsp salt, 1 dash paprika
Final- 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 tbsp honey, 1 cup mayo, 8oz cream cheese

Add first five ingredients to 2 qt water and boil. Lower heat and simmer for 40 minutes. Let cool. Blend dressing. Shred chicken and mix with 1 cup of dressing. Let marinate in refrigerator for at least an hour. Combine remaining dressing and final ingredients. Add chicken and mix well. Serve with crackers or in sandwich. 
Here's a picture of the first step...it smelled amazing! 

Here's the chicken and dressing after in marinated for an hour.
This is what the dressing and final ingredients look like mixed together. 
Doesn't look very appealing honestly. 

Here's the finished product! 

It sounds like a lot and it kinda is, but I promise it is totally worth it! It's easiest if you mix the dressing while the chicken is simmering. Then go ahead and put 1 cup of it to the side and mix the rest with the final ingredients. That way you can spend a lot less time in the kitchen. I didn't do this the first time I ever made it, but this time was much better and easier!
