Chicken Salad

Ocassionally we get a can of chicken and make chicken salad. Canned chicken can be pricey so we substitute with a couple boneless skinless chicken breast we bake and then chop. I don't use a "recipe" for this salad because it depends on what we have in the crisper and pantry. There's a formula I like and that's what I'm sharing with you. This weekend we ate the chicken salad on croissant with provolone cheese slices and a big slice of tomato.

Chicken Salad

Cold (or room temp-ish) chopped chicken
veggies - sliced olives, chopped celery, finely chopped onions, sweet relish
fruit - halved grapes, dried cranberries
nuts - walnuts, pecans

Mix chicken with mayo and choices from the remaining ingredient list.

Combinations we like - relish and olives; cranberries and pecans; celery, grapes and walnuts

Serve as a sandwich.
