Chicken Salad w/ Grape Tomatoes

I love chicken salad in all forms...well I love potato and tuna salad too...oh and egg salad. I think I just love adding mayo to things to be perfectly honest. It does need to be the right mayo though...I'm not big on things like miracle whip or "sweet" mayos. I like my Hellman's and there is another brand that use to be sold by the Winn Dixie grocery chain called Blue Plate Mayo that I liked too.

Anyway-this is not a blog about mayo its about Chicken Salad! You can make chicken salad 1843 different ways and its pretty hard to screw up. Throw what you like in a bowl and add mayo and you've got a great sandwich filler or lettuce topper.

This is a nice refreshing easy recipe that sounds somewhat similar to this Ina Garten recipe that I've yet to actually try. She has broccoli in hers and tarragon. YUM.

I used two boneless skinless chicken breasts that I baked in the oven in a mixture of olive oil, white wine black pepper, kosher salt and thyme.

Chicken Salad w/ Grape Tomatoes

-2 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, rough chopped or shredded
-1/2 cup halved grape tomatoes
-a pinch of fresh thyme leaves
-1 tsp spicy or whole grain mustard
-1-2 tbsp of mayo (depending on how moist you like it)
-about a tbsp of minced onion or chives

Mix all of the ingredients together and serve on bread, wrapped in a tortillas or lettuce leaves, or over some mixed greens.

That chicken salad one looks pretty good. That makes a high protein low fat meal.
