following recipe for Chicken Salad Roll-ups gives you an example
of how I include chicken in my diet. (I modified this recipe
from one similar in the Sept 2002 issue of Prevention Magazine)
cup finely chopped or shredded cooked skinless chicken breast
(about 1 medium sized piece) - chilled
cup drained and rinsed black beans
cup chopped celery
cup seedless red grapes (cut in half or quarters
if they are huge)
cup hummus (any flavor will do)
to 2 teaspoon curry powder (depends on how much
curry you like)
teaspoon roasted red chili paste (I use a brand
by Thai Kitchen found in the Thai foods section of my regular
wheat bread (I use whole wheat pita bread by
all ingredients together.
on bread for sandwiches.
served it with a large green salad, fresh fruit, and steamed green
beans, fresh from the garden.
could easily be added or increased to make enough to serve more
people. My husband commented on how good this was at least 3 times
during dinner. That is a sign of a recipe to keep and repeat again
some day soon!
about 2 large dinner sandwiches and enough leftover for one lunch.
