Bryan and I have a never ending battle with lunch. I'm happy to eat tuna every day of the week, but Bryan not so much. Plus finding a replacement 4 point lunch isn't easy. During a recent trip to Costco I walked past the canned chicken, next to the tuna. It dawned on me I could make Chicken salad with this canned chicken. I'm sure lots of people do it, but it just dawned on me. Today for lunch Bryan and I had chicken salad. It was so good, I just had to post about it.
Chicken Salad Ingredients:
Grapes quartered 0 points
Celery Sliced 0 points
Olive Oil Mayo 1 point for 1 TBSP (this stuff is gold) I did about 3 TBSP for the whole can
Canned chicken (Costco) 1/4-1/3 of the can depending on how many extras you put in 1 point
Sandwich thins (Kroger) 2 points
1 pecan half finely crumbled/chopped 0 points for one pecan half each sandwich.
Other possible additions: Onions, lettuce or apples (all 0 points)
I think you can figure out how to mix all those ingredients together. ;)
The grapes were so dark and sweet that I ate a ton for my side instead of chips. This meal reminds me that eating good healthy food can be delicious. Dieting or not this sandwich is awesome!
