The easiest and best chicken salad EVER

As I ate my lunch today, I decided I needed to share the good news with the rest of the world…
The best chicken salad I’ve ever had! Not only is it tasty, it is SO easy.
A little disclaimer- I don’t measure much…so here goes

Chicken Salad Recipe
2 cans of Tyson chicken (the container looks kind of like tuna, but mucho better)
1 GRILLED chicken breast (chopped)
Toasted almond slices
Some light sour cream
Some light mayo
Some chopped celery
Salt and pepper to taste
The grilled chicken and toasted almonds are the key ingredients to this whole mixture. So if you’re ever grilling chicken just throw an extra breast on the grill- super easy. First, I preheat the oven to 325. I throw about 4 oz of sliced almonds on a cookie sheet and pop ‘em in the over. I let them bake for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown (the smell is A-MAZING). Next, I chop up the grilled chicken and the canned chicken until it is pretty fine. It just depends on how you like your chicken salad- my momma likes it with big chunks- me, not so much. I then chop some celery- again it depends on how you like it. Dump the chopped chick in a bowl, and celery- salt and pepper to taste. Next, I dump some sour cream and mayo in the bowl and mix it around. Some people like it really wet and others dry, so just put as much as you like. And Waa-Laaa… you have a delicious lunch or afternoon snack.

I like to eat it on Oroweat “Heath Nut” bread its scrumptious. Steven adds cheese and tomato and I have seen others put it on top of some romaine lettuce… also pretty appetizing and healthy to boot! =)
On tonight’s menu- Chicken Parmesan, a light Caesar salad, a glass of white wine, and a nice run at Mudd Creek with our four legged friend! I can HARDLY wait!

Hope everyone had a productive and great Tuesday!
