In the recipe for Jamie's Chicken Salad Sandwich, you call for Silly Salt! what is this?

By Jackie on March 22, 2011


I was looking for something to repair the chicken salad I had made, which I had gleaned from several recipes off of Paula's site. Jamie's was the key with the hard boiled eggs. It added much favor and also provided a thickening agent. Results of atleast 4.5 stars. Thanks again for what your family for cooking and just having fun and great eats. Grady

I would like the recipe for chicken salad they showed on the Jan 24, 2011 show. Jamie prepared it, and I can't find the recipe on your site. Thanks in advance. Loved the show!!!!

By Jessie Torbett on January 24, 2011


Love the cooking show. I don't know what crazy salt is, so I just used less of regular salt. Great food. Thanks for sharing. I will be in GA in April and hope to visit the Lady and Sons resturant. Sharon

I LOVE this recipe! Made a few alterations since I have not purchased Paula Deen's seasonings (I need to but I am still in college on a budget & the only grocery around me is Kroger & Costco)! I added 1 Teaspoon Cavender's Greek seasoning, 2 Teaspoons lemon juice, 2 Tablespoons fresh dill, 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard, and of course added the rest of the ingredients! My boyfriend and I were amazed that a few can of Kirklands chicken from Costco could taste so amazing thanks to Paula Deen! I love you & I love chicken!
