I am so excited to share this post. This is our first day posting "Cooking with Kyle". Recently Kyle has acquired at new nickname in our house. He is taking a health class in school, and has turned into the food police almost overnight. I wrote about our grocery store adventure in my shopping with the food police post last week. Since he wants everyone to eat healthier, I came up with the idea that he could share a healthy kid friendly recipe each week. Today we had a snow day, so he decided to make us lunch. This is his own recipe.... Chicken Salad Surprise.
Chicken.. We used a can of 97% fat free Hormel chicken breast
Miracle Whip.. I did not have the lower fat version, and was not going out in the snow to get it
Minced onion... you might be able to use real onion, we did not have any on hand
For the sandwich bread, we used a Crusty French Baguette that was on sale this week for only .99. I followed the directions and cooked it at 400 degrees for 20 mins. It cooled, while he made the chicken salad.
He opened the can of chicken and drained out the liquid. He then placed the chicken in a mixing bowl
The sandwiches were served with a side salad made with all the veggies I bought on sale at the Meijer Dollar Sale.
This chicken salad was delicious. It had the right mixture of sweet and tangy. I knew that the spinach was in the sandwich, and I didn't even see it or taste it, so the surprise spinach idea worked. Kyle was proud that he made something that tasted so good all by himself.
He also had these words of wisdom, that he wanted me to share. "Busy moms can make chicken salad surprise quickly, and also get their children to eat some fruits and vegetables at the same time."
Because of the success of his first recipe, he is really looking forward to sharing another next week, on the next "Cooking with Kyle'.
We will be linking this recipe up on these linky parties
