When I told Chicken Legs about this Crunchy Chicken Salad recipe to say that he was less than thrilled would be an understatement. He said it was weird and didn't want to eat it. I just ignored him and made it anyway. Once I had everything mixed together, I had him come over for a quick sample. He reluctantly took a bite and said "That is really good!". LOL!

The base of this Crunchy Chicken Salad is a bag of broccoli slaw. This was my first time using broccoli slaw, and I loved it! I found the broccoli slaw in the produce section near the other types of slaw. I couldn't find it at my grocery store, but Target carried the slaw in their produce section.

This recipe makes a lot. It is perfect for a crowd. I think this would be perfect for a bridal or baby shower or even tailgating this fall. It also keeps well in the fridge for several days. I actually like to make a batch and divide it into plastic containers for an easy lunch all week.

This recipe uses almonds and sunflower kernels. I bought both of the nuts at Trader Joe's. Nuts are SO stinkin expensive at my grocery store! They charge over $6 for a teeny tiny bag. Nope!The almonds and sunflower kernels are very reasonably priced at Trader Joe's. They are also pretty well priced at Fresh Market or Whole Foods.

These Mushroom Au Gratin Potatoes combine two of our favorite steakhouse side dishes - mushrooms and cheesy au gratin potatoes. We always get an order of Au Gratin potatoes and a side of mushrooms when we go to fancy steakhouses on our trips. I decided to combine the two into one dish. The result was one AMAZING side dish! OMG! SO delicious.

I used a mixture of white mushrooms, shiitake and baby portobello mushrooms in this casserole. To get the potato slices all the same width, I used a hand-held slicer. Make sure to use the hand guard when you are slicing the potatoes!

We loved these Mushroom Au Gratin Potatoes. We ate these for dinner and again for lunch the next day with our other leftovers. This casserole would be great for a party or potluck!
