Ingredients

    2 cups Thrive freeze dried chopped chicken
    1 cup Thrive freeze dried Fuji Apples (each slice broken into bite-sized pieces)
    3 cups water
    1/2 cup Thrive freeze dried celery
    1/3 cup dried cranberries (cut in half)
    1/2 cup Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil
    1/4 cup toasted pecan pieces

Directions

Combine chicken, apples and water in a sauce pan over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer until reconstituted (about 10 minutes). Add the celery and the cranberries (I use a clean scissor to cut the cranberries in half). Put a lid on the pot and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

While the chicken mixture is sitting in the pot, toast the pecans in microwave: spray a pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and microwave the pecans 1-3 until warm and fragrant.

Put the mixture into a colander and allow to drain for about 5 minutes. Make sure to get all the excess water out (I take a spoon and squeeze it down a bit). Combine the chicken mixture with mayo and pecans. Season the with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until cool. Spoon onto bread or crackers.
