Chicken Salad



Ok its time for the hot weather to let up now. I am dreading my electric bill. We bought a roasted chicken from the grocery store. That is the best thing they have done. In this heat it is so easy to pick up a chicken and bring home and not have to heat up the kitchen. It is just the long drive home with the smell killing you.
We will eat half and shred the rest to put up to use in another dish.
I know everyone also has a chicken salad recipe but this is the one we are using.
2 cups diced or shredded chicken (roasted chicken)

3/4 cup celery
3/4 cup seedless grapes (we added a few more more)
1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of fresh chopped parsley
salt to taste we also added a dash of Greek seasonings
3/4 cup mayonnaise we felt it was not enough so we added more about a Tablespoon
you could also add a little yogurt
1/2 lemon juice
If we had any pecans we would have added them so any nut almonds walnuts also could be added.
combine all together and enjoy as a sandwich

Actually, I don't have a chicken salad recipe. The hubby wouldn't eat it.

He only eats tuna salad with mayo only. Picky about a lot of stuff.

p.s., I'm sure you don't want out power bill. Running an attic fan 24/7 in the barn - 3 fans during the day and 6 at night. 4 bug zappers.... And a huge house.
