For me, the best part of a roasted chicken is the leftover breast meat…
…because I make chicken salad with it. And I love me some chicken salad!
Now, I make my chicken salad with canola oil based mayonnaise, which makes it somewhat less fattening. Then, I plop it on some toasted whole grain bread and top it leafy lettuce. YUM!
As for my recipe, honestly I eyeball it so I’m not really sure about the quantities listed below, but you get the idea. Plus, it also depends on what ingredients I have on hand. Sometimes I’ll add dried cranberries and chopped apples. Anything goes! It’s all good.
½ cup chopped chicken breast
4 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp minced celery (about 2 stalks)
2 Tbsp minced red onion
¼ cup sliced raw almonds
¼ cup of red seedless grapes cut into halves
Add all the ingredients in a small bowl. Mix until well combined. Add salt and pepper, if needed.
