chicken salad

money saving tip, a way to stretch your dollar and that can of chicken, I’m broke, not sort of broke, but broke, I have about 50 in one account, 20 in another and I think a dollar in the other account, that’s it and no extra $$ to go buy groceries at the moment, what I see is what I get, so when I’m staring at the bare cupboards wondering what am I going to have for dinner beside top ramen or mac/cheese, I see that last can of chicken staring back at me but I’m so sick of sandwiches, there must be something else to make with it, how about just a salad with the last of fresh spinach, lets see if I can whip something together that will be tasty, if all else fails and it sucks, I’ll eat top ramen….I don’t measure when whipping up something different however in case you’d like to try this yummy salad, I’ll try to remember..

  • 1 can of chicken in water (2 cans would have been better but I only had 1)
  • 2 big tablespoons of mayo
  • handful of raisins
  • 1/2 diced green apple (small green apple)
  • 3 teaspoons of mango chutney
  • 2 tablespoons of curry powder (less if you don’t like curry that much or do it to taste, I love curry)
  • 1/4 cup of diced onions (green, red, yellow – whatever you have on hand, less if you don’t like onions all that much)
  • Mix it all together and serve over a bed of fresh spinach leaves, top with a dollop of mango chutney

Can of chicken has been stretched into 2 meals and its delicious to boot
