Had a perfect plan. You see, in my mind’s eye, I had the ideal lunch. It was basically some left-overs from the week-end. I had previously roasted a couple of chicken breasts bone-in with a delicious grape sauce.
I devoured one and saved the other. So, I decided to have same this afternoon. However, there went my palate. You see, the weather in my neck of the woods (South Florida) has been all over the place. A couple of days of ago, it was in the 40’s (now, that’s winter for us here). Now, on this day, this beautiful day, it feels like summer; temperatures are close to eighty.
Like the weather, I couldn’t help myself I felt the urge to scrap my original plan and transformed my meal to a summer-like chicken salad. Thus, I grabbed my handy food processor and removed the flesh from the chicken bone. Then, I tossed same inside the processor and pulsed my way.
In a bowl, I combined parsley, a few grapes that were going ‘south’,but still had life. I also incorporated a dollop of sour cream along with a little light mayonnaise. Chopped chicken was added to bowl with a pinch of cracked black pepper and salt and a fresh squeeze of lime.
All ingredients were combined and served on toasted rye bread. In addition, I had some super sweet grape tomatoes on skewers. By the way, they were excellent buys. Got a bunch of them on sale for $1.50. For drink, I chugged down some home-made cranberry and ginger drink with a garnish of fresh mint. Oh, I was tempted to put a splash of vodka, but, changed my mind. Enough of the backpedaling.
Guys, as always, be kind to your loved ones as well as your beautiful palates.
