Fruity Chicken Salad

A few days ago I posted a recipe for Roast Chicken with Milk & Lemons.  We had lots of chicken left over so I thought I’d try this Weight Watchers recipe for fruity chicken salad.

In Auburn, AL where I went to college, there’s a FABULOUS place called Chicken Salad Chick.  They seriously have THE BEST chicken salad you will ever eat.  And not just one kind either…they have a dozen different styles and they are ALL good.  I know this because I’ve tried pretty much every one of them.  This restaurant is one of those places that really became a part of my college experience, and I love it.  But don’t let the little skinny girl in their logo fool you. Just because it has the word “salad” in it doesn’t mean it’s healthy.  Maybe I loved Chicken Salad Chick a little too much, because they certainly did their part in helping me put on the “freshman 15.”


So I decided to find a Weight Watchers version.  And well, this was a great way to use up that leftover chicken, but I can’t say it was outrageously good.  Maybe I’m just comparing it to the delicious, mayonnaise-rich version of Chicken Salad Chick, but it was just lacking for me.  Maybe I should’ve put my chicken through a food processor to make it a little more mushy and less chunky.  Maybe the flavors of the chicken I roasted didn’t blend well with the fruit.  I dunno.  Although it wasn’t my favorite dish, my husband and I still ate it all.  So maybe give it a try and see what you think.  Maybe you can improve on this recipe!
