Sloppy Chicken Salad

“I made ’em extra sloppy for ya’s…”

If you’re not feelin’ a trip to the grocery store, have a chicken breast in the freezer and aren’t a stickler on exact measurements… here’s one of my favorite quick lunches that can be thrown together with just a few ingredients that you’re likely to have on hand:

  • Chicken Breast (1)
  • Green Onion (1)
  • Avocado Mayo (or whatever, really, as long it’s kind of mayo-ee)
  • Celery Salt
  • Himalayan Salt (or plain salt)
  • White Pepper
  • Cumin
  • Cashews (1/4 cup)
  • Romain Lettuce

Alexa.  Set a timer for 12 minutes.”

That’s about how long it took before I could pull a half-thawed chicken breast off my George Foreman (I cook just about everything on this beast).
During cook time, chop up the green onion and get to crushing those cashews.
Shred the fully cooked chicken, and add it to a bowl with the green onions and cashews…

NOTE: Plastic forks do NOT like hot chickens!
Now comes the “sloppy” part (there’s no measuring here, merely a couple of hints)…

In the same bowl, give a good ol’ squeeze of mayo (I’d guess maybe 3-4 tablespoons… but who’s counting?), a light shake of celery salt, a couple twists/shakes of salt, a dash of white pepper and a light sprinkle of cumin.

Give it all a good and sloppy stir.

Divide the mixture evenly onto your romaine leaves.  Then, most importantly, enjoy!

Oh, and don’t give in to the puppy dog eyes.  This meal is for you, not them!
