Last night the Mr. and I made one of our favorite homemade pizza recipes that I shared with you awhile back; BBQ Chicken Pizza. We always have so much fun in the kitchen together. As much as I love slaving over a nice meal and having it on the table for him, I also really enjoy when we do it together. Last night as he was flinging the pizza dough in the air to, "double it in size, babe", we discussed the next pizza we'd create together will be a BLT. The bacon lover that I am can hardly wait for that.
So, that whole story brings me to today's recipe in a very round about way. We had leftover chicken from last night so I made today's lunch with it. I love doing that; taking leftovers from one meal and using it creatively to get another meal out of it. It makes me think I could have survived well during the Little House on the Prairie days.
Here's what I made:
Chicken Salad for Two
1 1/2 cups leftover shredded chicken
1-2 generous tablespoons mayo
garlic salt to taste
sprinkling of ground ginger
In a small bowl combine the chicken and mayo. Add more or less mayo for your desired consistency. Season with a little garlic salt and ginger. You must add the ginger. It does something magical.
Quarter up a few grapes. Dice some celery. Mix these in with a final stir.
Spread over toasted or regular bread and viola, lunch.
