CHERRY CHICKEN SALAD
Ingredients for chicken part:
3 boneless chicken breasts
2 tsp Cajun or chili pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 tbsp canola oil
3 tbsp pineapple or 2 tbsp lemon juice
1 store bought rotisserie chicken, cold and shredded
Ingredients for dressing part:
1 1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Mix together canola oil, pineapple or lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and Cajun or chili pepper in a bowl. Add chicken and cover them with the marinade. Let sit covered for at least 1/2 an hour.
Heat a skillet over low-medium heat and roast chicken until browned and done.
Let chicken cool down completely.
Mix together all the ingredients for dressing and add the cold chicken, mix well, so all the chicken is covered with mayo mix.
We enjoyed our cherry chicken salad wrapped in a tortilla with some shredded Roman lettuce.
