Normally, I don't have a problem interchanging mayonnaise for Miracle Whip, but from making a cole slaw or two in the past, I knew the Miracle Whip brought some extra flavor that I didn't want to miss out on.
This is definitely a dish I would consider bringing to a party or get together. It's really simple to put together, and stays rather well for an extra day or two.

Scott made this for a work gathering. In playing around with it, we added two sliced green onions. We also seasoned the chicken with seasonsed salt and pepper, as well as adding additional lemon pepper to the dressing mix after the fact. Keep playing around with it til it tastes like you want it!

Chicken Cole Slaw-adapted from Shortcut Recipe Cards by Taste of Home
Total Time: 20 Minutes
- 3 chicken breasts, diced
- Seasoned salt & pepper for the chicken
- 16 ounce bag of cole slaw mix
- 2 celery ribs, chopped
- 2 hard cooked eggs, diced (here's my favorite website to learn how to make hard boiled eggs)
- 6 tablespoons Miracle Whip
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- Dash celery salt
- Dash or two of lemon pepper
Season chicken with seasoned salt & pepper. Cook over medium heat in a large skillet until no longer pink in the middle. In a large salad bowl, combine the chicken, cole slaw, celery and eggs. In another bowl, combine the remainder of the ingredients. Pour over chicken mixture and toss to coat. Continue to season with lemon pepper and celery salt until desired taste. Refrigerate until serving.
