Sickie Challenge: Two Recipes

Thank you Monique for developing the 10 Day Sickie Challenge! For more information on how you too can take part in this experience, get more information here.

Day Nine: Two Recipes!
These are two of my "go to" recipes for when I'm having a fibro day.  Its very little cooking, easy peasy, throw together delicious.  And they can be converted into a healthier option!

Fibro Friendly Chicken Salad 
Yield: 6 cups of chicken salad.
  • 3 cups cooked chicken breast
  • 1 red apple and 1 granny smith apple (doesn't matter which kind of apples, as long as there are 2)
  • touch of lemon juice
  • 1 cup sliced, seedless grapes
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup Craisins
  • ½ cup to 1 cup of light mayonnaise (to taste)
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped (or can use toasted slivered almonds)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Chop both apples into small cubes, and place into a bowl. Sprinkle over 1 tablespoon of lemon juice over apples, this will help them from turning brown. Add chopped chicken, chopped celery, grapes and craisins. Mix well. Add 1 cup of light mayonnaise, and stir well. Depending on how the salad is coated, you may want to add an additional 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper. Allow flavors to marry in the refrigerator in a covered container for about an hour before serving.

I love it on bread, toast, crackers, and even just with a spoon some days!

  • 1 ½ cup Alfredo sauce (small jar)
