An Update and a Recipe

Well I'm finally finished with my little stint in the pharma sales world and I am now safely and comfortably back in my cushy cubicle. I had a great time getting out and about and enjoyed getting to meet new people every day but there is something to be said for having a home base and knowing exactly where you are headed when you get in your car every morning. When I got back to the office I was also welcomed with a little promotion. Now don't get too excited, it's nothing dramatic but it's nice to feel rewarded for finishing grad school AND getting some experience in the sales world. Anyway, with that said, I have my head back and now have a bit more time to think about blog posts.

I have to get my sea legs back so I'm going to start slow (aka boring)...

One we go...this weekend I had the opportunity to host a baby shower for a sweet friend of mine who is expecting her first child in January and was flattered by being asked to take are of planning the menu! I won't bore you with all the details but I do want to share my chicken salad recipe because it was simple, easy and flipping GOOD!

please forgive the picture quality, I was in a hurry!

Rotisserie Chicken Salad
  • white AND dark meat from 1 large rotisserie chicken ( I get mine from Costco because they are huge, if you go for a grocery store chicken you may want to use the meat of 1 and a half, using the dark meat is KEY!!!!)
  • 1 1/2 c good mayo (Hellmans or Dukes)
  • half of a sweet onion diced very small
  • 2 ribs of celery diced very small
  • 1 c toasted pecans chopped
  • juice of half of a lemon (another KEY!)
  • salt and pepper to taste ( I also added a little garlic powder just for giggles)

mix everything together and pop it in the fridge for a few hours before serving.

* depending on what consistency you like, add as much mayo as you need; just remember that using the dark meet will ensure that it has lots of flavor and isn't overly dry. Also, the lemon juice really brightens up the flavor so don't leave it out!
