Sometimes you really don't want to cook. It may just be too hot outside and you just can't bear the thought of turning on the stove or the oven. Or you just may want something that you can put together quickly with whatever you have on-hand. This is one of those recipes.

I took some rotisserie chicken (from the deli), Greek yogurt, half a Granny Smith apple, a handful of raisins, a handful of craisins, a handful of chopped walnuts, some ground cinnamon and ground ginger.

Put your chopped chicken in a bowl.

Add the walnuts and the raisins.

Add the craisins.

Add the chopped apple.

Add some Greek yogurt. About 1/2 cup.

Add a few dashes of ground cinnamon and ground ginger.

Mix it until it is well combined. The beauty of this is that you can add more of whatever you like until you get it just right.
You could also add a bit of cream cheese to the chicken salad. Is that too decadent?

I was trying to be healthy so I just served mine on top of a bed of chopped romaine lettuce. This chicken salad has possibilities.
Why not make an open face sandwich? Melt a slice of your favorite cheese on it. Make some dainty tea sandwiches. Toast some thick whole grain bread and make a hearty chicken salad sandwich.

  1. for a different spin you could add curry, maybe minus some of the fruit.
