~Market Fresh ~ Chicken Salad

Greetings and Holykisses,

TGIF!

Apple Prayer Bread's on the to do list today. And since I have extra apples, I decided to use one to make my favorite "samiches." Have you ever had an Arby's Market fresh samich? They are deeeeeelicious! As much as I love em; I don't go very often coz they're loaded with calories. 769 to be exact. lol As good as they are, I hardly ever eat all the bread that comes on them either... so I like to make my own version at home.
I use:

1 large can of drained Tyson chicken (or cook your own)
chopped pecans
chopped red grapes... mmmmm (the best part)
1 chopped apple
Mix all of this really well with either fatfree Mayo or Lite mayo.
Then, I usually use the 50 calorie bread, but today... wheat thins!
If I use bread, I also add a little lettuce but today used crackers instead.

I'm spoiled on the thinking that I need chips with a samich; so I like using wheat thins for the bread. A girl needs her "crunch" don't ya know! ;) Pickles are great for "crunch-factor" but... my taste buds tend to scream "No!!!"-- to pickles mixed with grapes. lol Go figure?

My oven's calling me, so I better go tend to it. Otherwise the smoke detector will be hollerin next. Besides; you know the rule: Never blog n bake.
Have an awesome day!

One more thing; Can't believe I almost forgot to share the good news-- test results came back today .... no skin cancer!!
Thank you Lord! Our God's good!
Soli deo gloria
