"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." ~ 1 John 4:9-12

Pineapple Chicken Salad

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Easter! After all the indulging lately, I felt like making something quick & light, so of course I reached for a couple cans of chicken. Yes, cans. I pick up 2 large cans of chicken breast and tuna every time I go to the grocery. I do LOVE chicken salad made from fresh chicken, but let's face it - sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day!

Anyway, I was looking around for something different than the AWESOME~est Chicken Salad that I usually make. I found this recipe on MyRcipes.com and made a few changes.

Pineapple Chicken Salad

2 - 12.5 oz cans of chunk chicken in water
2/3 of a 15 oz can of crushed pineapple, drained
1 small grated carrot
1/3 cup sliced almonds
3 or 4 green scallions finely sliced
1/3 cup mayonnaise ( I use Hellman's Olive Oil Mayo)
1/3 cup greek yogurt
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 or 2 tsp McCormick Steakhouse Seasoning Grinder (or regular pepper)
1 tsp McCormick Sea Salt Grinder (or regular salt)

Drain chicken, and mash it with a fork to shred it up. Add the pineapple, carrot, almonds & scallions and mix. Whisk the mayo, yogurt, worcestershire and spices, then mix it into the chicken mixture. Chill and serve.

Servings: 8
Per serving: Calories - 196, Carbs - 10g,  Fat - 9g, Protein - 22g, Sodium - 806g, Sugar - 6g

The grated carrots make the chicken salad look "tropical" - LOL! Actually my tiny shreds made it look like salmon salad, a light orangy-pink color. Use larger shreds if you have an aversion to gaudy cuisine!

Let me know if you make it (and like it)!

Have an awesome day!
