Chicken Salad Sandwich
A great idea is to plan to enjoy this at lunch the day after you enjoy a roast chicken or rotisserie chicken dinner the night before. Even purchasing from the supermarket can be quick, easy and economical for you and your family. This recipe serves four and is courtesy of McCormick Spice.
1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 rotisserie chicken, cut into bite-size chunks (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1/4 cup chopped red onion
Tip: Add 1/2 cup fresh or dried fruit such as chopped dried apricots, chopped apple or halved grapes to the chicken salad. Or add 1/4 cup chopped nuts such as pistachios, pecans or walnuts.
HOW TO PREPARE
Mix yogurt, mayonnaise, parsley, seasoned salt and pepper in large bowl. Add chicken, celery and onion; toss to coat well. Cover.
Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to pack up in your lunch box. Pack up with some salad greens to add when you are ready to eat so everything stays crisp. I like to pack sliced tomatoes and black olives along with this sandwich, too.
