Flossie Chicken Salad

One of the funniest and favorite people on the planet is my friend Jessie, also known as Floss. She gave me this recipe and it's really REALLY good.

1 small rotisserie chicken
zest of 1 lemon
freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste
3-5 (or more) fresh basil leaves
a bunch of mayonnaise
freshly ground pepper
pinch of sea salt.

Pull all the meat off the chicken. Chop the basil and mix it with lemon zest, salt, pepper, mayo and lemon juice. Stir it all together and enjoy - even better when you let it sit overnight!


The thing that makes this recipe so good is the freshness from the lemon juice and basil. Adding onion might compete with that but feel free to add some finely diced celery if you're looking for an added crunch.
