Chicken Salad Stuffed Shells

How was everybody’s weekend? It was dreary and kinda cold here in Chicago…it has been for awhile. A warm, sunny day is way past due. One of my good friends is moving to Singapore in September so she threw a party on Saturday to celebrate. She hosted a pig roast…this was a definite first for me. As we were driving to her house it was pouring rain and I was wondering how the heck Catherine and Glen would roast a pig in this weather. Of course I was imagining a huge pig rotating around on a spit. I’m so naive! We live in Chicago…we have tiny balconies, not yards! Catherine picked up a whole (already cooked) pig in Chinatown, Glen carved it and we all pigged out!

How does this relate to our Chicken Salad Stuffed Shells? Well, it doesn’t. But if it weren’t for Catherine broadening my horizons I would always stick to chicken. And that wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing because these Chicken Salad Stuffed Shells are delish!

Giada made Chicken Salad Stuffed Shells similar to these a few weeks ago and I immediately mentioned to Kara that we needed to try. At first I thought I’d need to convince her since she’s not a chicken salad girl…but she was into it and we tried them out a few weeks ago. We’ve now made them twice and are planning on making them a third time this weekend. That’s how good they are! And they’re good as an appetizer, a main dish or even as leftovers!
