Chicken Salad Wraps
I was watching Intervention last night and there was an alcoholic named Sean on the show. Every time I watch that show I can't wait for the last 4 minutes so I can finally catch a glimpse of a hopefully 3 month sober person, it's amazing how refreshed and happy they look...but Sean let me down by now going to rehab and so there was no pay off.
I will also confess that my husband was sucked into a Jersey Shore Marathon therefore I was forced to watch. I feel sort of dirty for watching it for lets say maybe 4, 5 or maybe 12 hours...but being 37 weeks pregnant my main job is to make sure that the couch doesn't move and the cable doesn't quit working...so really only my husband should feel bad.
Speaking of feeling bad I also sort of maybe might have eaten all the frozen cookie dough out of the freezer.
Speaking of feeling bad I also sort of maybe might have eaten 2 Burger King Crispy Chicken Sandwiches.
Speaking of feeling bad, it makes me really sad that my butt now points south versus north..I like to call this "sad butt". You get sad butt from lack of exercise and eating cookie dough and chicken sandwiches..dipped in ranch...twice.
Speaking of sad butt, this chicken salad will be a great addition to every ones figures! Make it.
Delightfully borrowed from Me
Serves a family of 4 all week
(4) Chicken Breasts
1 1/4 cups Mayonnaise
1 1/4 cups finely diced Celery
2 tbs freshly chopped Dill
1 tbs freshly chopped Parsley
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
Water or Stock for Poaching, if using water add in some Italian Herbs for flavor
For the wraps :
Garden Veggie Salad Mix
Place your 4 chicken breasts on the bottom of a large pot, submerge in stock or water. Bring pot to a fast boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 12 minutes covered. After 12 minutes of simmering remove from heat and let the chicken sit in the water for 15 minutes covered. Remove chicken from liquid and allow to cool.
Once your chicken is at room temperature, chop into mini bite sized pieces. Toss chicken with remaining ingredients in a large bowl and serve in wrap or on toasted bread...or heck on a spoon!
I assembled my families lunch by placing some Salad Mix, Feta, and Chicken Salad in our Wraps. Delish warm or cold!
