|I put him in the dining room, it looks like|
he's pointing at me in the kitchen.
Two weeks ago I had lunch with my friend, Paula. In order to work up an appetite we shopped before lunch. I have a collection of "JOY" things and when we came across this little guy I decided I would add one more.
When I go out for lunch I usually order the chicken salad - I figure if a restaurant, especially one calling itself a 'tea room,' can make a decent chicken salad, I'll come back and try other items on the menu.
I made this recipe up as I went, once again playing with my food.
Grilled Chicken Salad
1 grilled chicken breast (charcoal or wood will have a better taste than gas grilled) I chopped the meat up into tiny little squares trying to make all the ingredients look about the same size.
1 handful of chopped dried cranberries
1 handful chopped pecans
1 handful of chopped celery
1/2 handful chopped spring onion (I only used the green part)
1/2 handful of fresh parsley
Toss these ingredients together then add 2 or 3 tablespoons of your favorite mayonnaise.
Cover and chill for a couple of hours (it will taste even better chilled overnight).
This recipe made 4 generous servings. I was experimenting (yes, my husband is o.k. with being my guinea pig). In a week or so, Paula and few other friends are coming by - guess what we're having to eat?
What's new in your kitchen?
I'm taking my gnome and my recipe over to Uncommonly Yours' Link Party - join me.
