Chicken Salad

I have a true love-hate relationship with chicken salad. I hate the usual calories that lurk behind the false identity of the word salad. On the other hand, I sometimes want to lick my plate if a little drops out of a sandwich or a wrap.  Today I was having a gal from the college group over for lunch and I decided to try and make some. It never quite tastes like the restaurant, but I was very pleased with how this turned out. I will definitely make this again.

4 cups cubed chicken breast (2 large boneless/skinless)
1 1/4 dried cranberries
1 cup reduced fat olive oil- mayo
1 cup diced celery
2 green onions, chopped
1 tsp. seasoning salt
1 tsp. curry powder
sprinkle of granulated garlic

Mix it all together. Chill if possible.

1/4 cup is 112 calories (Perfect amount for a 100 caloried sandwich thin.)
Yum! Enjoy!

    Sounds great! Can't wait to try it! I've been doing chicken, miracle whip, seasonings and grapes lately but I think yours sounds better :)
