A few years ago I discovered Patsy’s Chicken Salad. It opened my eyes to the use of dried cranberries and poppy seeds in my chicken salad, and I’ve never turned back. It takes a normal chicken salad over the edge. Over the years, I’ve sort of adapted it to my own so I don’t have to look up the recipe every time I make it. Sometimes I add apples, sometimes grapes, sometimes nuts. Just depends on my mood.
1/2 apple (I used Fuji, but Granny Smiths are great too)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp poppy seeds
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup fat free plain yogurt
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the chicken breast into small bite-size pieces. Combine with all other ingredients. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors mesh and the cranberries will plump a bit.
I ate this on a sandwich thin the first day, but the second day it was really good with some crackers. Crunchmaster sent me a case of their crackers to review and this chicken salad was really good scooped on top.
The name says it all…these crackers are CRUNCHY. You can’t eat these things quietly. I wasn’t sure how these would be since the first thing I noticed was that they’re gluten-free. Gluten-free stuff tends to have a strange texture sometimes, but these are just like “normal” crackers. My husband even got upset when I insinuated I might bring some to work to share. I believe the exact quote was, “I’m not sharing!”
Okay, fine, he didn’t want to share with my coworkers. But then he said he didn’t even want to share with our son! That’s taking it too far, friend. So I packaged up some snack bags with crackers for the little guy to take to school. They were gone in a heartbeat.
What I personally like about them is that they’re baked, and have 65% less fat than regular multigrain chips. Score!
Since Crunchmaster sent me a case of chips, it’s only fair that they send you one too, right? Fill out the Rafflecopter form below and you could get a whole case (that’s 12 bags, folks) of White Cheddar Multigrain Crackers.
