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 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
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!
