Ingredients (8)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (4)

  1. 1

    Make the chicken salad. Place the chicken, bacon and cheese into a mixing bowl.

  2. 2

    Stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, pickle ranch dressing and lemon juice until well combined. Toss with the chicken mixture until well coated; set aside.

  3. 3

    Cut whole pickles in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop out the center of the pickles — the seeds and a bit of the flesh — to create a “boat,” leaving about 1/8—1/4-inch of pickle around the edge.

  4. 4

    Spoon chicken salad into the pickle boats, dividing evenly between the boats. Sprinkle with the chopped scallions and serve immediately.
