Ingredients

    Roasted whole chicken (from your favourite deli/grocery store - our fav is SAMS CLub)
    1 Onion - vidalia or sweet
    3 stalks celery heart
    4 oz's walnuts
    4 oz's dried cranberries
    1 medium red pepper
    1 TSP curry
    .5 TSP Cayenne pepper
    3 TBS Miracle whip - or lite may - adds a few fat grams if using lite may
    2 TBSP Dijon Mustard
    1 Tsp Brown Sugar
    Salt Pepper to taste

Directions

Makes aprox 8 servings for a VERY thick sandwich. Goes best with a mutli grain not too sweet bread. Add a slice of ripe tomato to add moisture. This will actually yeild more for sandwiches as it is hard to pack this into 1 sandwich- and you will get closer to 12/14 servings.

As a salad over lettuce/tomato etc. - around 4 oz's due to veggies etc - makes a nice lite salad dish,
Prep:

In skillet over high heat - lightly toast walnuts with 1 tsp brown sugar - set aside
(Cool chicken in fridge - do not use warm or hot)
Using already cooked roasted chicken - from deli or homemade. Remove white meat frm chciken, debone and remove skin. CHop up meat(dicing technique) typical yeild is about two cups. Throw into bowl.

Dice red pepper, onion, celery and add to chicken.

Add walnuts, cranberries and remaining ingredients. I usually start with 2 TBSP Miracle whip - and then add the third if the mixture is drier than I like.

Stir (smoosh:)) together until all ingredients are mixed. Cool in fridge until ready to serve.
This will not be a pasty or really wet chicken salad. For sandwiches add a slice or two of tomato to the sandwich.. Fine over salad greens.
