A Taste of Tuesday

So, I have decided that I really like having sandwiches for breakfast. I find I don't get the mid-morning munchies nearly as bad. Even if I have a BA omelet or something, I still get hungry earlier. So anyway, I had tuna sandwiches for about 2 weeks and got a little burnt out. This week I made some really yummy chicken salad. Here's how I made it:

Dee's Chicken Salad

  • Chopped cooked chicken (you can broil some, I slow-cooked a bunch of boneless/skinnless thighs)
  • Mayo - I  used the Walden Farms calorie/fat free stuff. I'm not a huge fan of mayo and this doesn't really taste anything like mayo, but it's great to hold chicken or tuna salad together.
  • Shredded cheese (I am a creature of habbit, I used the cabot 50% light again)
  • Pecans
  • Raisins

Mix together and put on something.

Note: It is REALLY hard to find bread that does not have HFCS or sugar as the second ingredient. I found some weird little round things put out by pepperidge farm called "Deli Flats" that have "sugarcane fiber" and honey in them. I can't find much nutrition information about "sugarcane fiber" other than a few web sites that say it should not be considered real fiber.  So, I have no idea if it is any better than just sugar, other than the fact that it was pretty far down the ingredient list, so at least this bread isn't loaded with it. They taste ok. Honestly, the chicken salad is good enough that it overpowers the bread anyway!
