Try something New

Ok, over the weekend I tried a new recipe from our Eating For Life cookbook. Its a new favorite and if you try it, you might just like it. Plus its good for you!

Artichoke Chicken Salad

2 servings

2 cans (5oz)white meat chicken chunks, drained (or 1-2 chicken breast, cooked chopped)
1 can (14 oz) artichokes in water, drained and sliced
1 tomato, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 C fat free italian dressing
Lettuce

In large mixing bowl, combine chicken, artichoke hearts, tomato, cucumber, parsley, garlic and black pepper. Add dressing and toss to coat. Serve over lettuce if desired.

*When I made this for 2 servings, I cooked one large chicken breast and used a small jar of seasoned artichoke hearts, only a couple oz size. I also used dried parsley. It turned out very yummy... and I am not a huge artichoke fan... but I am now! Let me know if you try it out and what you think!
