Four Foods on Friday

This is my first time participating in Four Foods on Friday, hosted by Fun, Crafts, and Recipes. This week's theme is chicken.

#1. How do you make chicken salad? ~ I take the easy route. I use canned chicken, drained and shredded. Maybe add diced celery or onion if I have it. I also like dried cranberries in my chicken salad, but Hubby says that fruit and meat don't belong together in the same dish. For the dressing, I use equal parts mayo and ranch dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

#2. Fast food chicken. What fast food restaurant makes the best chicken? I love Chik-Fil-A chicken. I usually get either the Chik-Fil-A sandwich or their chicken strips.

#3. What’s your favorite way to eat chicken? I think stir fried is my favorite way to eat chicken. We eat a lot of chicken, so that's a hard one to say for sure.

#4. Share a recipe using chicken or take a picture of a chicken dish.

Grand Strand Chicken Bog
(Found in the Vertical File of Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)

Chicken Bog is a traditional low country dish. It always makes an appearance at church suppers and other gatherings of large groups. Every one has a different version, but this is the way I like it.

2 1/2 lb. chicken pieces
1 c. chopped onion
1 1/2 lb. smoked sausage
1 tsp. black pepper
2 c. long grain rice

Boil chicken and onions in 4 c. water until tender. Debone chicken. Slice sausage in 1/2" pieces, add sausage, pepper and rice to chicken. Simmer until all broth is absorbed and rice is cooked. Serves 8.

Welcome to FFoF!
I put Chick-Fil-A, too. They're the best! (I always get mine on a whole wheat bun.)
