Recipe Time!

When I was younger I did not enjoy Chicken Salad, but I have since begun to enjoy it. There are SO many varieties and it is fun to try new ones. This is a unique chicken salad, being that it is a bit sweeter then the “normal” (from the Poppy Seed Dressing) and  mayo free (unless you add a bit after it is chilled, see recipe below).  I am glad I tried it, I will be making it again.  If you are looking for a unique recipe, this might just be it!

Chicken Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing  
2 c. cooked, cut-up chicken
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. Poppy Seed Dressing
1/2 c. cream cheese (I used about 4 oz.), softened cream cheese
1/4 c. craisins
lettuce
bread of choice

Combine the chicken, onions and walnuts. Mix together the Poppy Seed Dressing and softened cream cheese. Add to the chicken mixture, stir to coat. Add the craisins. Stir. Chill a few hours. (It might dry up a bit as it chills, I added a spoonful of mayo and a bit more Poppy Seed Dressing.)  Serve on tortilla, lettuce leave cups, toasted English Muffins or Sandwich Skinnys (see above note) with lettuce.  Enjoy!

Recipe adapted from Betty Crocker.

Another Fun Recipe Idea!

I will call this An Easy Egg Sandwich, though I am not so sure it IS a recipe…..I made this egg sandwich by using a Sandwich Skinny bread and scrambled eggs that were leftover from another meal.

Open the bread up, put some eggs on, top with cheese (I already had cheese in the eggs, so I did not), feel free to add some meat too IF you want to. Wrap in foil and cook @ 350° for 20 minutes or so, till warmed through. My kids and I enjoyed this for lunch the other day! Enjoy!

  1. Bobbi….I love those pictures! Esp. the chicken salad, what is the bread? But I know I don’t like the sound of Chocolate Mint Milk….ugh

    • Thanks! The bread is from Aldi, called Sandwich Skinnys, I of course like mine toasted ~ they are really good. Yeah, I wasn’t too sure about the sound of that milk either THO I think it might make a good hot chocolate!

  2. I love those sandwich skinny’s. I often put lunch meat, provolone, thin slices of red/yellow bell pepper and some ranch dressing in between and then grill them on my george foreman. Quite yummy

    • THANKS!!! Sounds yummmmmmy! I will be making this for lunch soon! Thanks for the good idea! 🙂 (I do not have a George Foreman Grill ~ but it should work on my griddle too……)
