What's For Lunch?

I'm so bored with my usual lunch: turkey and cheese on a whole wheat wrap. So boring. I'm trying to branch out and add new lunch and dinner recipes to my "repertoire" (if you want to call it that...) So today I tried Dijon Chicken Salad on a whole grain pita. It was good! Here's the recipe:

2 (10 oz.) cans chicken
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup halved seedless green grapes
1 cup halved seedless red grapes
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tsp. dried chives
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. dijon mustard
3/4 mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

Mix together the chicken, celery, grapes, cranberries and chives in a bowl. Whisk together the honey, mustard, mayo, salt and pepper. Add the mustard mixture to the chicken mixture, stir to coat.

what is a can of chicken!?

Nora said...

Its like tuna...only with chicken. I've had it in salad before. It's not as gross as it sounds.

I don't think Chris has spent much time in the tuna fish aisle at the grocery store...

not really, but I am the grocery shopper in our household. I actually like grocery shopping for the most part.

Melanie said...

Why is it that most guys like grocery shopping so much, and every woman I know detests it?

Hmm...

Yes, this is curious. Ben LOVES grocery shopping. I hate it with a passion. Ben easily spends at least an hour and a half there every time he goes.
