- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the Smart Chicken on a baking sheet pan and rub skin of the Smart Chicken with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for approximately 40 to 45 minutes, until the Smart Chicken is cooked. Using a digital thermometer make sure internal temperature is 165 degrees F. Set Smart Chicken aside until cool enough to handle. Slice the Smart Chicken into bite-sized pieces.
- In a large bowl combine Smart Chicken, mixed vegetables, corn, hard-boiled eggs, creole or Cajun seasoning, green onions, mayonnaise, mustard, and, if using, toasted pecans and tarragon. Mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least two hours. If using, place on a bed of lettuce.
