Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Hot Chicken Salad

Hot Chicken Salad3__No Sugarless Gum

When I got married my grandmother–who is a stellar cook–gave me a cookbook she had filled with many of her recipes.  It’s a wonderful gift and I will treasure it forever, but as I flipped through it I began to realize there weren’t any recipes I could have!  Very depressing.

That was a few years ago, though.  I’ve been adapting recipes for FM a little over a year now, and after recently looking through my cookbook again, I’ve been able to view it with a different eye.  Rather than scanning for key words and thinking “oh, I can’t have that,” and moving on, now I have a better knowledge base to think “here’s what I can substitute for that!”

I was, admittedly, a little wary of this recipe.  It looked like the easiest one to adapt, which is why I chose it, but I really hate celery.  After making it I was fully prepared to make something else for myself.  But I should not have doubted Grammy–she knows her shit.  My husband and I both adored this recipe!  So much so that I ate a whole serving (and he had 5…out of 6).

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of cooked chicken, cut up
  • 2 cups of celery, finely cut (about 6 stalks)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise with tolerable ingredients
  • 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese (optional, based on tolerance)
  • 1/2 cup of slivered almonds (optional, based on tolerance)
  • 1/4 cup of green pepper (optional, based on tolerance)
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheese, such as cheddar (optional, based on tolerance)
  • 1 cup of crushed potato chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl except for chips and 1/2 cup of optional cheese, and Hot Chicken Salad__No Sugarless Gummix well.

Grease an 8×8 casserole dish with cooking spray and then add the chicken mixture.
