2 cups leftover chicken
1/2 tsp salt

2 stalks of celery
1/4 medium red bell pepper
1/4 small onion
1 small carrot
3 tbsp sweet pickle relish
3/4 cup of reduced fat mayonnaise
Green leaf lettuce
Whole wheat or rye bread
(For a sweet touch
add chopped cranberries.)
Shred carrot. Finely chop chicken, celery, red bell pepper,
Combine in a bowl.
Add salt, pepper, pickle relish, and mayonnaise.
Stir until well mixed.
Spread on bread and top with lettuce and tomato on spread.
Note #1: If you don't have any leftover chicken, simmer
a chicken breast in a little chicken broth or white wine until
cooked through. Cool and shred.
Note #2: Children, invalids, the elderly and picky
eaters will often consume bread better, especially whole grain,
if you trim off the crusts. Humor them. Cut into diagonal
quarters. The trimmed-off crusts won't go to waste; dry them
for bread crumbs.
