Tarragon Chicken Salad
1 tbsp butter
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mayonnaise (Hellman's is GF)
3 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon (I also just checked and McCormick has dried tarragon leaves that are GF, you just have to use less if you use dried, maybe around 1 tbsp)
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 cups chopped cooked chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups diced Granny Smith apples
1 cup celery diced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
salt and pepper
Melt butter in a small skillet over med-low heat.
Add pecans and cook, stirring constantly 6-8 minutes or until toasted and fragrant.
Whisk together mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir in chicken and next 3 ingredients just until blended.
Add salt and pepper to taste
Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.
Stir in 1/2 cup toasted pecans just before serving.
Sprinkle with remaining pecans.
