Salpicão: A Brazilian Chicken Salad

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Here's one of the dishes I made to serve for my family on Easter Sunday. Salpicão is a tradional brazilian chicken salad, while many people have different versions of it, this is my favorite. You can add other ingredients to this chicken salad if you like, such as: shredded carrots, peas or apples. But what makes this salad different and Salpicão, it's the shoestring potatoes, a must in this dish. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

2 whole chicken breast, boneless and skinless
10 ham slices, diced
1 (15.5 oz) can corn kernels, rinsed
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 chicken bouillon
A handful of parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 standard package shoestring potatoes

In a sauce pan; add the chicken and chicken bouillon, cover with enough water and cook the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked, allow it to cool and shred the chicken into pieces. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, ham, corn, and raisins. Stir well with a wooden spoon to combine. Add the mayo and parsley and stir until everything is well combined and coated with the mayo. Season with salt and pepper. Before serving sprinkle the shoestring potatoes over the top for a crunchy factor.
