Quick Sunday Lunch

on June 24, 2012

This is a great way to use leftover chicken without having to cook.  I didn’t use a recipe and didn’t measure anything so the quantity of each item is “some” or “to taste”

Chicken Salad

Leftover boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks

Grapes, red or green,  cut in half

Celery, chopped

Onion, chopped or minced

Walnut halves or pieces

Miracle Whip Light

Curry powder

Black pepper

Garlic powder

Mix it all up and you’re done!   It can be eaten right away but refrigerating for an hour or so will blend the flavors.  I think it will be even better tomorrow.

I thought about adding pineapple but glad I kept that on the side.  Chopped water chestnuts or apples might get tossed in next time.

This could be served on lettuce as a salad, I put it in whole wheat pitas.   There was no lettuce in the frig (very unusual) or that would have been stuffed that in the pita as well.

I don’t have nutritional info on this but everything is healthy.  Yes, even Miracle Whip in moderation is not horrible! Miracle Whip Light gets a Nu Val score of 11, regular is a 4. There is only 37 calories in a tablespoon, I probably used 1/4 cup for the entire recipe.  This made 4 stuffed pita halves with at least that much more leftover.

Served with a side of pineapple, watermelon, and grapes.
