A light lunch – and a reminder (Bloggers Bake For Hope)

You know I hate waste.  So when I roast chicken and have some leftover, I need to do something with it besides throw it in the trash.  Now that grilling season is here, I suspect the same will happen with chicken on the BBQ.

Here’s a quick and easy way to jazz up a potentially boring sandwich.  Try subbing grapes in for the apple, or almonds for the walnuts…yum!  You could even serve this on lettuce wraps or in a cored apple.  Do what you like!

And don’t forget, bidding for Bloggers Bake For Hope ends tomorrow (Friday) – check out all the delicious goodies being auctioned off!  Again, all proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen – a wonderful cause.  Thanks to those who have already participated for your generosity!

Chicken Salad with Apples & Walnuts
1 chicken breast (or dark meat – really, whatever you have leftover and/or prefer), skinned and shredded
1/2 apple (any type you like), chopped
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix.  Taste as you go along and adjust condiments and spices to your liking.
