NOT YOUR USUALL CHICKEN SALAD

I made it today and I like it very much, mostly because of the fine mix of spices. It is not the usual chicken salad. I'll definitely make it often.
This recipe is from an excellent cookbook called No reservation required by superb chef Bev Shaffer.

*** NOTES!
1. Instead of cooking 2 split breasts, skinned, boned and cubes, I used the chicken meat from a rotisserie grilled chicken, store bought. I only sautéed the onions, as marked.
2. Instead of using fresh pineapple, I used canned crushed pineapple in its own juice. I'm sure that the chicken salad will be even better , using FRESH pineapple
3. This recipe works well also as a filling for a sandwich. I tried it and it was great.

INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons sugar'1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
*** 2 split chicken breasts, skinned, boned and cubed ( see note above)
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion ( I used more)
1 ounce fully cooked ham, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1 cup seeded and finely chopped tomato ( I used the food processor for that)
1/4 cup sour cream (use the REAL thing. When the amount is so small, I do not use low fat sour cream, and definitely not fat free sour cream.

DIRECTIONS

Stir together sugar, thyme, cinnamon, white pepper, salt, cayenne, nutmeg, and cloves in a small/medium bowl. Add chicken to spice mixture: toss to coat well.
*** see note # 1
Heat oil in a 10" skillet. Add chicken and onion: cook over medium high heat until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from skillet. Chill mixture until cool.
To the cooled chicken mixture, add ham, pineapple, tomato and sour cream. Toss to mix well.

Enjoy

CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD WRAPS

10 servings
10 Points Plus per serving. (My points are probably 6 per serving)

Notes!
1. I reduced the amount of mayonnaise, so I assume one serving will be about 8 Points Plus
2. I used low carb tortillas, and that also lower the Points Plus to maybe only 6 Points Plus
3. I used rotisserie chicken meat. Less work, but more Sodium....sigh

INGREDIENTS

3 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup half seedless red or green grapes (I used re grapes) 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
2/3 cup light mayonnaise (I used about 4 tablespoons)
Salt and pepper to taste
10 large (10 - inch) flour tortillas ( I used large tortillas, 90 calories per one)
10 lettuce leaves

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large bowl, stir together chicken, celery, grapes, almonds, lemon juice, curry powder, mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste.
2. Place one lettuce leaf on each tortilla. Divide chicken mixture evenly to 10 portions. Put one portion in the center of each lettuce leaf.
Fold up bottom and roll up tortilla.

Enjoy

Another Sandwich out of our WW Weekly Reader. It is good!!

TURKEY REUBEN
5PT+ per serving. Serves 1

2 slices reduced-calorie rye bread
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
3/4 ounce low-fat Swiss Cheese
2 oz deli-sliced turkey
2 Tbsp sauerkraut, squeezed of excess moisture
1 Spray cooking spray.

Place bread on a work surface; spread 1/2 T. mustard on each slice.
On one slice, place cheese turkey, and sauerkraut. Top with second slice of bread, mustard-side down; press down gently.

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray; set over medium heat. Add sandwich and press down on it lightly while it cooks (you can even rest a flat pot lid or a heat-safe plate on top of the sandwich) Cook, turning once, until toasted and cheese has melted, about 6 minutes.
Yields 1 sandwich per serving

NOTE: For the best tasting sauerkraut, search out the prepared, refrigerated varieties in the deli case at your market........ keeps well
