Chicken Salad

Just wanted to share a recipe I have been enjoying this week. It started with a suggested web-site to help me with ideas for the Brown Bag Challenge from my friend Jaclyn.

On Cooking Light I found this Creamy Chicken Salad recipe. It looked pretty tasty, I knew I had just about all the ingredients in my fridge, and that I could eat it throughout the week!

Here's my adaptation:

1.5-ish cups of shredded chicken
1 cup light Miracle Whip
1 tbs white wine vinegar
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs yellow mustard
A handful of sliced almonds
1 chopped medium apple
a handful of grapes, sliced

I combined all the wet ingredients first and then mixed in the chicken, almonds and fruit. Super simple, cheap and easy! Plus it's got protein & fiber! Play with the mix-ins, add sliced carrots, chopped boiled egg, shredded cheese, celery, onion, peppers, anything!

So yummy in the tummy
