Homemade: Eat Your Heart Out Arby’s
Last week we posted a review about Arby’s Pecan Chicken Salad Market Fresh Sandwich. We have also mentioned that it does not appear to be around anymore (although some people have reported still having it). Click here if you missed the video of Ryan’s Search: “Where did you go Arby’s Chicken Salad Sandwich?” This chicken salad is really good, so I decided to take it upon myself and make my own. Not quite Arby’s version, but hey, its close enough…
In reality, Arby’s Pecan Chicken Salad is a simple recipe that isn’t hard to duplicate. I’m starting with 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut up. I’m cutting my chicken a little smaller than the Arby’s chicken salad.
Next, I chop up some celery…
Then some fresh apples-I was feeling lazy so I bought a bag of pre-sliced, I’m cutting them into bite sized pieces.
The California red seedless grapes are getting cut into halves.
The final ingredients are the chopped pecans and Kraft Real Mayonnaise.
I’m mixing everything together in a bowl, adding mayonnaise as I go until the consistency looks right. So here it is, my version of Arby’s Pecan Chicken Salad.
If you can’t find it at an Arby’s near you, just pick up the ingredients above, and make your own. Who knows, it may end up better than the real thing. Enjoy!
