My Favorite Lunch!

15 Aug

It is around 6:15 am as I write this post. I have been up for almost 2 hours not feeling well. My body feels exhausted and every muscle hurts! My arms and legs feel tired and sore….great! Really helping my day progress I just know it. So I figured I could do a blog post since there is no chance of me going back to sleep!

Monday when I was off I had gone grocery shopping after our run and I made one of my favorite lunches ever!

I love Chicken Salad ALOT! But I hate buying canned chicken and using it because I think it has a really weird metallic-y taste. Tuna tastes the same way to me…but I also hate fish so that may be why I am so against the canned chicken. I am also lazy with making lunches. Dinners I will go all out and cook for hours, but lunch better be something quick.

Problem solved a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store did the job. (Our store carries 2 sizes so I got the smaller one, with only two of us it was enough for chicken salad and to make a casserole for dinner that night.

So here is how I make my chicken salad.

Had to move the chicken to this pan since it spilled all over my car and everything else…stupid cheap container it is sold in plus way too much juice in the bottom!

Ingredients: Chicken shredded up, mayo, celery, garlic powder, curry powder, walnuts…I use crasins too love them. However I thought I had some but I didnt. It was still pretty yummy!

I chop the celery and nuts up with my slap chop! It is not just a goofy infomercial it is also a useful tool!! Plus I love chopped walnuts the oils that are released when you chop them give off the great sweet but nutty flavor that works so well in this recipe!

All mixed up! So yummy….I dont measure anything in this recipe I just do it to taste. I know what I like and how much usually when it comes to spices so in my own recipes I never measure.

Finally assemble and eat! I use romaine lettuce leaves or make a cup with iceberg, but the iceberg was looking bad at the store so romaine it was!

I like to roll them or keep them open and have an example of both.

Filling and delicious and I still had enough chicken salad left over for a sandwich yesterday at work and then some!


What are your favorite quick lunches, or lazy short cuts to make quicker lunches?

I would really love some new ideas! 🙂

    Oh and about lunch. My lunch lately has been a salad with celery, tomatoes, sometimes carrots, lettuce, of course. I have been using Bragg Organic Braggberry vinegar and olive oil with one clove of garlic mixed in for dressing. It’s yummy.
