Grilled Chicken Salad

Last night we grilled chicken breasts using my favorite Apple Rosemary marinade. Fortunately, there were two left over, so I made my favorite chicken salad. Here's the recipe.

    2 Grilled Boneless/skinless Chicken breasts chopped
    1/2 Medium Apple diced
    1/2 C Dried Cranberries
    1/2 C Pecans pieces
    1/2 C Sweet Onion chopped
    1/2-3/4 C Mayonnaise
    1 T Honey Mustard
    1 T Stone Ground Mustard
    Salt & Pepper to taste

In a medium bowl mix the chicken, apple, cranberries, pecans, and onion. In a small bowl mix together mayo, mustards and salt & pepper. Pour over the chicken mixture, stir together.

Apple Rosemary Marinade

Here is the recipe for the Apple Rosemary Marinade for the grilled chicken breasts. This marinade also works well on pork.

    1/2 C Apple cider or juice
    1/4 C Apple cider vinegar
    1/4 C Olive Oil
    3 T fresh Rosemary chopped
    2 T Honey
    2 T Stone Ground Mustard

Mix together and pour over chicken or pork. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
