Chicken Salad 3 Ways

 I love chicken salad
and I'm not talking about 
canned chicken and mayo
on a boring old piece of bread.
I am talking about 
beautifully poached chicken 
salad with the works! 

Here are three wonderful ways 
to serve up chicken salad:
In a wrap:
On a bun:
Over a bed of lettuce:

To poach your chicken 

You'll need:
Chicken broth
Half an Onion
Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

Put ingredients into a stock pot 
and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, 
and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Then let chicken cool.

While the chicken is cooling,
assemble "the works"
Chop fruit, veggies & nuts.

Suggested ingredients:

Green Apples, Red Onions, Celery, 
Carrots, Grapes, Walnuts, Pecans, 
Dried Cranberries, Dried Cherries, Raisins...

Next shred chicken.

Then whip up your dressing.
To cut back on calories use equal parts 
mayo and plain greek yogurt.
*I like to add about a spoonful 
of honey mustard.

Finally mix it all up and
season with dill weed, garlic powder
and fresh ground pepper.
