Sometimes, I let myself get too hungry and then I’m tearing through the kitchen looking for a quick lunch option.
Usually, I make a smoked trout sandwich (I swear it’s tasty, and definitely should be the subject of another post), but, I try to mix it up every now and then.
So, today I had some leftover boneless, skinless chicken thighs and all of a sudden a chicken salad seemed like the quickest, easiest and healthiest lunch option. Here’s what I used:
~ 4 ounces cooked boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 stalks of celery
1/4 red onion
1/2 handful chopped raisins
1-2 tablespoons Bone Suckin’ Mustard
2 slices of your favorite bread (I used Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Panne)
Basically, I diced everything up and threw it into a bowl. Then I added the tablespoon(s) of the Bone Suckin’ Mustard and mixed it all together. This mustard is so well seasoned that I didn’t need to add anything else and it was SO tasty. It has very simple ingredients:
Distilled Vinegar, Water, #1 Grade Mustard Seed, Brown Sugar, Molasses, Jalapeno Peppers, Cornstarch, Turmeric, Paprika, Spices, Garlic Powder & Natural Flavor.
I have to add, this mustard is good on just about anything. I’ve used it to make a dressing, it’s good on burgers, salads, you name it. I have also been tempted to eat it straight out of the jar.
If I had more time, I would have used some carrots and maybe some chopped nuts. What’s your favorite chicken salad addition?
