For a protein-packed lunch your kids are sure to enjoy as they settle into a new school year, try this light and healthy curried chicken salad sandwich with apples, cranberries, and pecans. This chicken salad I created also works great at the office with crackers as a mid-morning or afternoon snack..
Also goes great with a PSL. (Although, what doesn't?)
-2x 12.5oz cans premium chunk chicken in water
-1/4 cup light mayo
-2oz (1/3 tub) nonfat plain Greek yogurt
-1/4 cup dried cranberries
-1/4 cup chopped pecans
-1 1/2 red apples (I've chosen Braeburn here)
-1 tsp honey
-1 Tbs whole grain Dijon mustard
-2 tsp curry powder
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
Dice 1.5 apples and put into medium sized mixing bowl. What to do with the unused half of apple? Well, I thought I'd give some of it to the Husband, as a small tasty bit while I was cooking. Half an apple SHOULD make for a very healthy little appetizer... but he had another plan...
Add to your apples the drained chicken and all other ingredients and stir well. The salad tastes best the following day, when the apple, curry, and cinnamon have blended together in a delightful autumnal melody. EnJOY!
