paleo chicken salad-- otherwise known as what I eat almost every day

This recipe was created especially for me by my Chef's simple and tasty and Jessica tweaked. It can also be prepared ahead of time and eaten off of for days. 
The Recipe: according to me
  • Roasted chicken breast cut into tiny tiny pieces so it is hidden amongst the other ingredients
  • 1 bag of grapes cut into halves
  • About 4-6 celery stalks sliced into little pieces 
  • 2 spoonfuls of mayonnaise
  • Chill in refrigerator  
The other night, Sunday night around 10pm to be exact, I begged my husband to please make my chicken salad for me so I could go to bed and be well rested for school the next day. I told him he would do such a great job because cooking is his specialty.  The next day at lunch I dove into my lunch...what was that in my salad? A nut?! And why did it taste different?? Martin had tried to be fancy with my chicken salad...something he knows is a big no no. 

I think he secretly changed my recipe so I wouldn't ask him to make my chicken salad at 10pm anymore...he's very smart. Although the changes may not have been noticeable by the naked eye, I have the ability to tell the slightest differences in any recipe I have mastered...right mom? 

The Recipe: according to Chef Martin
  • 1 medium roasted chicken, skinned, and cut into small cubes  
  • 2 cups of halved grapes 
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3/4 cup of chopped Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise (enough to coat ingredients)
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 T red wine vinegar
  • Chill in refrigerator 

I'm sure you will enjoy either version
