Chicken Salad Recipe

IMG_0033

I really like my mom’s chicken salad with grapes and ranch seasoning. But, I didn’t have any grapes so I went to Recipe Puppy, typed in the ingredients I had on hand and a chicken salad recipe that used honey mustard came up. I was a little scared at first, so I made a small batch. I added apple pieces and made my own honey mustard sauce. I think this chicken salad is great with crackers or would make a great sandwich (add a piece of romaine lettuce and a few slices of tomato). It is a quick and easy lunch that isn’t too terribly unhealthy. Here is my take on the recipe.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 can (12.5 ounces) Organic Canned Chicken
  • 1 medium Fuji Apple
  • 1/2 cup walnut and pecan pieces
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3-4 tablespoons (rounded) yellow mustard
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey

DIRections

  1. Drain chicken and shred using two forks.
  2. Peel (optional) and chop Fuji apple into small chunks.
  3. In a small bowl combine yellow mustard and honey. The consistency should be a little runny. Add more mustard or honey depending on your “honey mustard” preference.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. For a creamery consistency, you may want to add more mayonnaise.
