Debby Weighs In: A Trio of Delicious Chicken Salad Recipes

6850_banner_debbyweighsin.jpg

I am currently in the middle of a kitchen renovation/addition project. It will be so nice when it is all done, but for right now I have no kitchen (no running water, no stove) in my house. So I am all about the simple easy no-cook (but still delicious) recipe. Even if you are not renovating your home, there are probably plenty of days that you are in the midst of The Next Great Quilt Project, and you need a quick fix for dinner or lunch.

I was delighted when I found these three recipes on my own blog--I had forgotten all about them! I had pre-cooked chicken breasts and frozen them in individual servings before the stove moved out. So I have all the ingredients ready to assemble these salads.

Here is my recipe for a single serve Chicken Apple Salad:

6850_img_3880.jpg

Ingredients:

Baby lettuce, or spring mix, or 50/50 spinach/baby lettuce,  3 big handfuls

1 ounce roast chicken, chopped

1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled (I used goat cheese that was coated with cranberries)

1/2 apple chopped

1 carrot grated

Dressing:  1 tsp each balsamic vinegar, mustard, olive oil, maple syrup.

Directions:  Mix the dressing in the bottom of the bowl and add the greens.  Toss to coat.  Dump the other stuff on top and eat it!

Description Statement:
Based on WIzard of Oz, design composition inspiration was posters of Alphonse Mucha and the 1930's movie, resulting in an almost cubist interpretation. I used my own cruder vesion of Joan Colvin's fabric collage technique for the trees and hand painted Dorothy and the corner figures. Also incorporates couched yarn, thread painting, confetti collage and machine applique. The background is semi-impressionistic/watercolor technique, using 1.5 inch finished size squares
