Did you know chicken has been around since 1863? It’s been a mainstay recipe for 150 years. It’s a great and cost effect way to use leftover chicken, and is one of those wonderful staples.

With summer right around the corner, moist chicken with crisp, fresh and vegetables is a healthy and decadent treat. Served with fresh fruit on the side and Parmesan cheese shavings, this light and creamy recipe is sure to please.

Replacing regular high in mayonnaise with a low-fat olive oil version turns this recipe around to a light, heart friendly meal.

If you don’t have much time to prepare a meal, this recipe takes no more than about 10 minutes to prepare, and can be refrigerated in an airtight container.

Most of us enjoy going out to lunch during the work week; it’s a great way to unwind from the hustle for a bit, but it’s expensive. On average, an individual meal can cost between $5 -$10 a day, or about $30 – $50 a week.

This recipe, using leftover chicken cost $1.43 a day or $8.78 a week, netting a weekly savings of about $21.22 – $41.22. Who doesn’t love saving money?
