We've discussed this before. My lack of control when it comes to chicken salad. I opted to forgo the sides and just eat 2 of these babies. They were good.
This is a fairly simple basic chicken salad. I often add fruit and other flavorings but was in the mood for something simple and this did the trick. I used the Arnold Select Sandwich Thins today but I often put this on a whole wheat tortilla too. So you can have a sandwich or a wrap!
Check out my tasty array of chicken salad recipes. I plan to increase this category a lot over the summer! This is my favorite! But looking at all the pictures, I so want to eat them all!
