Perdue Farms Bourbon Chicken Salad Recipe

Some time ago Costco had a coupon for Perdue Bourbon Chicken. We bought a bag and we liked it as a snack but I thought it had more potential.  As a chicken salad ingredient, it is a great choice: it adds the meatiness of chicken, the sweet tang of the bourbon sauce and a variety of colors.  This is what I came up with and I made it again last night for dinner.  This recipe makes two servings:

  • 1 head romaine lettuce, washed and chopped (from Costco)
  • 12 oz (about) of Perdue Bourbon Chicken (from Costco)-cooked
  • Sliced Almonds-(Almond Accents brand from Costco)
  • Golden raisins
  • Your favorite ranch dressing.
Aside from tasting great, it is a pretty and colorful dish.

The cost is pretty reasonable too. We got the chicken with a coupon, so the total cost of a couple of salads was less than  $4 total. Compare that to a price of probably about $8 each if you were at Applebee's or TGI Fridays. And this salad is certainly far better for you than some other options. And you could improve the health aspects of it by using a nonfat/lower fat dressing and by using a bit less chicken.


  1. Where can we purchase the bourbon chicken here in southern calif. The costco stores don't stock them anymore. Our zip code location is 92870.
