Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend was a great one and if you are on the East Coast I hope you are surviving the Blizzard of 2013. It’s been a nice quiet day and I am actually in the kitchen preparing a nice lunch that is healthy for a change. Whenever I buy a rotisserie chicken for the week, I make chicken apple salad with turkey bacon. It’s easy and light. You can control the calories by how much mayonnaise you choose to add.
This recipe is for two and here are the ingredients:
- chicken breast
- 1 Fuji apple or Granny Smith (if you prefer a tart taste)
- 2 slices of cooked turkey bacon
- 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise or Miracle Whip (light if you choose)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Microwave two slices of turkey bacon until crispy (4-5 minutes) and let it stand. Slice chicken breast then cut into small pieces and add to a bowl. I usually cut up all of the chicken breast and save for the next day. Next core 1 Fuji apple and cut into cubed pieces. Add the cubed apple and crumble the turkey bacon into the bowl with the chicken. Finally add the mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste. I use the mayonnaise lightly so I can hold onto my girlish figure :).
And there you have it, a nice chicken apple salad. I eat it with crackers or alone but feel free to make a sandwich. Hope it as good as mine. Well, now I must go and get ready for the Grammy’s on television.
