I know I've posted this before, but I forgot about it until today. Think I'll make it next week!

Luncheon Chicken Salad

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups cooked chicken breast -- cubed
20 ounces pineapple tidbits -- drained
11 ounces mandarin oranges -- drained
1 cup celery -- chopped
6 green onions -- chopped
1/2 cup green pepper -- chopped
2/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise
7 1/2 teaspoons brown mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar substitute
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

Stir together chicken, pineapple, oranges, celery, green onions, and green pepper.

In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients.

Combine with chicken mixture.

Chill and serve. (It's good warm too.)

"This colorful combo is a great change of pace from the usual salad"

NOTES : You can substitute finely chopped red onions for the green, and/or yellow mustard for the brown if desired.

Oh wow, this is one of my favorites! Now how did I ever miss the mandarin oranges in the first go-round? I've been making a modified version (actually just adding pineapple when I make tuna or chicken salad) but I think I should make this exact salad by the exact recipe this weekend. It would be a good thing to divide into containers for 2-3 days worth of lunch!!

I know this is on the core board, but how many servings and pts would this be? It certainly sounds delish!! I might just add some curry powder to it also.

Hmmm, servings? Maybe 6-8? Points? I don't know. Gee, a wealth of information I am, huh? :)
