This is an awesome chicken salad recipe.  It’s very refreshing and tastes like something you would find in a good deli!

 

Fruity Chicken Salad Sandwich

 

Whenever I make this, my friends always want the recipe. It has a sweet and crunchy taste that is great for lunch or a light dinner.

Fruity Chicken Salad Sandwich

Ingredients:
Chicken (I use canned just to keep it super easy but feel free to use cooked chicken breast)
Lemon juice
Red grapes (cut into quarters) – I put in green grapes too
Gala apple (peeled and diced)
Low fat mayonnaise (this stuff is great – only 1 gram fat per tbsp)
Salt & Pepper
Lettuce & Tomato
Whole Wheat Pita – OR – Fresh Croissants

I don’t usually measure anything with this recipe. It is all to taste. Drain the chicken and soak it in about 2 tsp lemon juice. The grapes must be firm or they will be gross in the salad. Cut them into quarters. Peel, core and dice the apple. I love gala because it is so sweet and crunchy. Add 2 big spoonfuls of mayo (I used to use fat free miracle whip…but it doesn’t have very much flavor). Mix it all up and add salt/pepper to taste. I serve this on with either croissants or pita bread.
