As a newlywed, I am still trying to add to my repertoire of meals.  This week we had some rotisserie chicken leftovers, so I decided to try and squeeze another meal out of that first one.  Do you ever do that?  Cooking is such a creative process, for me it's like a puzzle.  This time I had all the pieces!

As with most of my recipes, this involved throwing a bunch of stuff and mixing it together: SUPER EASY!


  • 3 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced apple
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds optional
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder, or to taste, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • lettuce leaves

All of these amounts are suggested, but really you can add as much or as little of what you have and make it your own style.   

(I used this recipe as a guide but then tweeked it a bit.)


Basically mix all of these ingredients together and add mayo to taste.  I added a little spoonful of sour cream for a little more moisture.

And there you have it! It makes for a quick lunch preparation.  I think it took me about 15 minutes total.
