|Chicken Salad Sandwich|
I had two chicken breasts as a result of cooking a chicken to make a stock for soup. Chicken salad was a perfect use for them, don't you think?

|Chicken Salad Ingredients|
- 2 boneless chicken breasts, poached and diced
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- salt and pepper to taste
Now, I know you don't need me to go step by step through the process of making a chicken salad, but there are a couple of tips I'd like to share.
First, put the diced chicken, onion and celery together in a bowl. Toss them around and then add your salt and pepper to taste. I find that seasoning the base ingredients gets me to the right level of seasoning right off the bat.
Second, you could toast your walnuts for additional nutty flavor. I didn't because I was in too much of a hurry to make myself a sandwich. If I was making this for guests I would take the time to toast the nuts. ...Just sayin'.
Third, go ahead and chop the nuts and dried cranberries, but not too much. You want to be able to taste them and appreciate the variety of textures in this chicken salad.

I used a torpedo roll lined with shredded iceberg lettuce as a bed for my chicken salad. Doesn't it look delicious? Yes, indeed, this was a nice treat for my wild and crazy lunch. A wrap would have been terrific as well, but I didn't have one.
