Easy Chicken Salad from 101 Cooking For TwoA very tasty lunch for the busy holiday season. Your eating in 10 minutes with minimal work.

Sometime you will need a fast lunch on the run and this was one of those days. I had forgotten to plan for lunch. I had no supplies. So to the pantry was raided. I emerged with a can of chicken. How odd…

Inspired by Martha Stewart’s Classic Chicken Salad with a few minor changes

Rating

An odd rating considering it came from a can but really the can had no effect on the outcome. I will need to keep some of this around.

Notes:
Any chicken should do as long as it is a little chunky. Actually the canned chicken was a little to chunky and I broke it apart a little. I got a cup and a half from the 13 oz can of chicken. AND it was tasty. Who would have thunk it…

Any chicken will do as long as it is chunky. Dice 1 stalk of celery and half a small red onion finely.

Combine 1 1/2 cup diced chicken, 1/4 cup mayo, 1/2 small red onion diced, 1 stalk celery diced, 1/2 t parsley, 2 t lemon juice, 1/2 t Dijon mustard, 1/2 t salt, and 1/4 t pepper.

Mix well and serve on a sandwich, salad or in a wrap.

    This is how I like mine. I don’t enjoy the ones that have grapes, apple, and/or nuts in them. I guess that’s just because this is how my mom made it, without all the frills.
