Lunch Today!

Found this in this month's Country Home...it was quite tasty and will definitely make it again! Enjoy!
Chicken Apple Salad Sandwich
start to finish 25 minutes
  • 1 7.5-oz pkg.Tyson Frozen cooked chicken breast strips...thawed. (i actually found these in the regular meat section)
  • 1 large granny smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/3 c. dried cranberries
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1/3 c. fat-free or light mayo
  • 1/3 c. fat free or light sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt and ground pepper
  • whole wheat bread

makes four sandwiches

Combine first five ingredients together. In another small bowl mix next five ingredients together. Stir wet ingredients into chicken mixture. There you have it! Yum!

As I was typing this I remembered a job I had in my late 20's when I needed a bit of extra cash. A well known chef in our city hired me to transfer all his recipes onto the computer. It was a pretty easy gig that got me a wonderful free meal and great money. Typing the fractions out, made me realized that it wasn't a job that I loved so it pushed me harder to find a better paying teaching position (is there such a thing?). I only wish that I had made a few copies of his recipes for myself. I hear he went on to own a wonderful well known restaurant and has made quite a name for himself.

I think I'll try this on the weekend. It looks great(and I can sneak some extra goodness between the bread the kids won't even notice!).
