Warm Chicken and Potato Salad

warm chicken and potato salad

The other night I had some leftover chicken to use and came up with this quick meal.

Warm Chicken and Potato Salad
  • gold potatoes
  • leeks
  • coconut or other oil
  • leftover cooked chicken, cubed
For the Dressing
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 / 3 cup olive oil
  1. Peel and cook the potatoes, then cut them into large chunks.
  2. Saute sliced leeks in coconut oil.
  3. Warm the leftover chicken in the oven or microwave.
  4. Place potatoes, leeks, and chicken in a large bowl.
  5. Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Drizzle over the contents of the bowl while gently tossing to mix the ingredients.

You might want to increase the amount of dressing. I knew my family wouldn’t like a lot because of the vinegar. I served it with a garden salad.

It wasn’t a meal that everyone was thrilled with, but they didn’t dislike it either. I would make it again, maybe using onions instead of leeks to add stronger flavor. What would you add to this dish to make it flavorful?

    Linda – it sounds like a good idea to me! Sometimes if I want to add a little more flavor to a recipe I’ll put a little bacon in it. You could sautee that in with the leeks or onions – a little goes a long way. It sounds good to me as it is, though!

    I would probably add some sautéed green beans or celery. There doesn’t seem to be anything in the recipe that gives it a little crunch. Love the bacon idea also.

    A few add ins I might use for a little extra flavor:
    Green onions
    Spicy Ham chunks
    Green olives
    Roasted red peppers
    parsley or other fresh herbs.
    Love the idea and the dressing

    My family does a similar dish but with sauerkraut instead of leaks and we use a yellow mustard vinegaret.
