What’s Cookin’ – Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I got a great deal on a dozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts at the grocery store last week. Made Parmesan Chicken with 8 of them, then Hubby barbequed the remaining 4 last night. We made grilled chicken sandwiches for dinner and had 2 left over today so I got to make one of my favorites … Chicken Salad Sandwiches.

I chopped up two chicken breasts into small chunks, although you can use the large cans of chicken that are sold near the tuna fish at the store. Drained and chopped one 10.5 oz. can of mandarin oranges, threw in about 1/8th of a cup of sliced almonds, seasoned lightly with garlic salt and mixed all together with a few spoonfuls of mayonnaise. It’s that simple and is so good. It always tastes really fresh. I think it’s the mandarin oranges that give it the light, bright flavor and the crunch of the almonds is spectacular!

You can get four sandwiches out of the two chicken breasts. We pile them nice and thick on wheat bread.

What’s Cookin’ – Hawaiian Salad

Mom, apparently you should have published a cookbook because it seems so many of my favorite recipes that we make over and over are from your kitchen.

We are having a few people over for a barbeque on Sunday. We’ll be doing burgers, brats, pasta salad, pico de gallo, chips. As I’m running through this with hubby he asks, “Aren’t you going to make Hawaiian Salad?” This is another one of his all-time favorites and I usually have to make two bowls — one for company and one to hide away just for him. I have seen him eat right out of the serving bowl with a large serving spoon. Sorry, honey, but it’s so cute!

Hawaiian Salad

This salad could not be easier to make and it’s fast. This is the kind of thing you can put together quickly if company is on the way over. You just need these ingredients:

 

Hawaiian Salad

2 – 20 oz. cans Dole Pineapple Tidbits (drained)

4 – 11 oz. cans mandarin oranges (drained)

2 cups mini marshmallows

1 cup unsweetened flake coconut

8 oz. fat free sour cream

Mix it all together in a big serving bowl and chill. You can certainly adjust the amounts if you like more coconut, etc.

 

This salad is especially refreshing when it’s hot outside, but we eat it all year long.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
