Warm Chicken and Potato Salad – What’s for Dinner Wednesday

what's for dinner wednesday 5

Welcome to What’s for Dinner Wednesday (gluten-free style). This blog carnival takes place on Wednesdays and is about compiling gluten-free dinner ideas. At the end of my recipe you can add a link to a dinner idea on your blog, or follow the links to other blogs. Be sure to check back for new links. If this is your first time participating, you can read the guidelines here.

warm chicken & potato salad

The other night I had some leftover chicken to use and came up with this quick meal. I peeled and cooked gold potatoes in the pressure cooker, then cut them into large chunks. While the potatoes were cooking, I sautéed a bunch of leeks in olive oil. I warmed the leftover chicken in the oven.

In a large bowl, I combined the potatoes, leeks, and chicken.

In a small bowl I whisked together:

You might want to increase the amounts. I knew my family wouldn’t like a lot because of the vinegar. I drizzled this over the potato salad as I carefully tossed it. I served it with a garden salad.

It wasn’t a meal that everyone was thrilled with, but they didn’t dislike it either. I would make it again, maybe using onions instead of leeks to add stronger flavor. What would you add to this dish to make it flavorful?

Mr. Linky has been having problems. If the box is not there, leave your link in the comments and I'll add it manually.

Linda - it sounds like a good idea to me! Sometimes if I want to add a little more flavor to a recipe I'll put a little bacon in it. You could sautee that in with the leeks or onions - a little goes a long way. It sounds good to me as it is, though!

I love all the salad idea people have been sharing for dinner. In the summer there is nothing better for dinner than a night light cold or warm salad. Thank you for sharing and I agree with Gina... Bacon.

Hi Linda,
The pressure cooker makes great potatoes for salads. My link to Turkey Cutlets w/ Chipotle Mustard Pan Sauce is here: http://celiacsinthehouse.blogspot.com/2009/05/whats-for-dinner-wednesday-turkey.html
 
Mr Linky is driving me winky because it's acting stinky.

If you find anything else like stinky linky let me know. I guess I'll need to do the same thing for Friday Foodie Fix. Arggg
