Summer Supper Chicken Salad Stuffed Cucumber boats


Best summer dinner recipes ideas

They don’t call August dog days for nothing and nothing beats these stuffed cucumber boats for a light lunch or supper on those hot summer days.

Now my thumb is usually any color but green but it seems that this year the color green really loves me. The cucumber seeds I planted are producing cucumbers like gangbusters! So last week I asked around for any ideas for using these cukes and my niece suggested I stuff them with chicken or tuna salad. Well I am pretty famous for my cranberry walnut chicken salad recipe, so I figured why not?

Since we had a rotisserie chicken yesterday and had some leftover cooked chicken and I used it to whip up a batch of chicken salad. Since I used seasoned rotisserie chicken I eliminated the cooking and seasoning step for making this salad, but if you don’t have a rotisserie chicken leftover you can always cook up some chicken tenderloins as the recipe suggests.

These cucumber boats are so tasty and crunchy you may never want to have chicken salad any other way! Thanks Ashley for this great idea!

Wash and dry the cucumber. Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to hollow out the cut cucumber. Slice a bit off the bottom so that it stands up straight on a plate. Use a spoon to remove the seeds and hollow out the center.
