Chicken Salad

Now that the weather is getting warm, it’s time to make some of my favorite summer dishes.  This one is simple to make and I could eat it every day.

Chicken salad can be enjoyed many ways:  As a sandwich, over a salad, on crackers, ect…

Here is the way I make my chicken salad.

What you will need:

Chicken Breast:  About 2 cups of boneless skinless
Purple Grapes:  Seedless About 1 cup
Celery:  About 1 cup
Almonds:  Sliced or diced:  About 1/2-3/4 cup depending on taste
Mayo:  1 cup of Mayo (I use the Walden Farms brand to cut down on the fat)
Fresh Lemon:  Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of the lemon
Salt & Pepper:  To taste.  (I use either Sea Salt or Mrs Dash)

Boil the chicken till done, then shred into small pieces.   (If you have left over chicken from last nights dinner you can use that)  Cut the grapes into pieces, and dice the celery.  Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.  Sometimes I add a small amount of onion also. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

Serve as a sandwich, or over salad, or with crackers.  Enjoy.  Let me know what you think of this.
