Arby's Chicken Salad

Arby's makes a "Market Fresh" Pecan Chicken salad in the summer. It's a really good chicken salad sandwich made with real ingredients such as a real person might make at home. So I made it at home.

You take some leftover chicken, add some halved seedless red grapes, chopped red apple, sliced celery, and pecans. Then mix in some mayo, but not too much. And serve on whole grain bread with a couple of lettuce leaves.

You could leave off the bread and just eat it as a salad. But I recommend eating it right away, or leaving the pecans out and adding them just before you eat it, because the pecans loose their crunch if you keep the salad overnight.

Arby's uses huge slices of bread and I find that this salad falls out of my sandwiches at home. So a wrap or a lettuce wrap works better.

It's pretty good even without the celery and apples. I added a dash of lemon juice. Some people use: walnuts instead of pecans, tempeh instead of chicken, yogurt or sour cream instead of mayo.

And some people add: salt and pepper, dried cranberries, mango flavored dried cranberries, parsley, spinach, and cayenne pepper.

Marilyn came over for dinner and I made this for her. We have been catching up on Supernatural.

My bout of depression on Tuesday passed quickly as usual. I've been feeling pretty good.
