Harvest Chicken Salad

After several days of nothing new, I finally have a great new recipe to post. This one has been whirling around in my head for a while now, just waiting for the right name and the right weather. It uses leftover cooked chicken. A roasted chicken is perfect. I used leftovers from a home-cooked rotisserie lemon-pepper chicken.

Harvest Chicken Salad

What You Need:
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped roughly
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 of a large green apple (tart), diced (for color and texture, I leave the peel on)
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • a dash of salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
How it's Done:
  1. Simple: combine everything. Stir it up and serve on bread or with crackers. Store in the fridge tightly covered.

This looks great. I love chicken salad with fruit in it and this seems like a good variation on my normal one.

That does sound yummy, and I have all the ingredients in my cupboard except the nuts , I think I will add in celery for that extra crunch!
