Best Chicken Salad EVER!

I’m always pressed for time, so I’m always looking for easy make ahead recipes that are 1) Easy 2) have ingredients that I usually have on hand and 3) are AWESOME. This is a chicken salad recipe that meets all of the above!

I cook my own chicken breast in the oven for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.

I love this food processor, I was able to put the cooked chicken breasts whole and they chopped down to this!

Awesome mix of ingredients: walnuts, grapes, green onions, chopped fresh basil, poppy seed dressing, mayonnaise.

The perfect summer sandwich.

    Recently I was extremely low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this.. With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – xas2
