But, for some reason, sometimes things work out well when I throw things together.
It's the beginning of the month and my next day of work isn't for another week. My kitchen in near empty, which should be good for my diet, so I need to be creative with my meals. That's not easy as my title says...
But, I have some leftover chicken tenders that had to be used. I fear throwing out food and seeing dollar signs fill up my trash can. I wanted to recreate the chicken wrap from my favorite Alumni Grill but I have no mushrooms, spinach, pepper, or wraps. Instead I decided to make a simple chicken salad.
with a couple chicken tenders, some crumbled goat cheese, a teaspoon of mustard and a pinch of celery seed, a tasty chicken salad came together pretty quickly. I put it on some whole wheat toast, smeared with mustard, and finished it off with some basil leaves, instead of lettuce.
Obviously, I was surprised by how much I liked it. Just goes to prove, you never know until you try.
