Laine's Chicken Salad

I threw this together last night because I had thawed a chicken breast without exact plans for it and didn't want anything warm for dinner, as we have been enjoying some beautiful, summer-like weather. The measurements may not be perfect as I wasn't measuring anything as I was putting it together, but it turned out pretty well anyway. Sometimes it's good to just follow your instincts! I may work on developing this further in the future.

Laine's Chicken Salad
makes 2 sandwiches

1 chicken breast, cooked, cooled, and diced
1/2 celery stalk, diced
2 T. diced onion
1 T. fresh parsley, chopped, or 1 t. dried
1/2 c. Miracle Whip or mayo
1-2 T. coarse mustard, such as Dijon or Polish 
Juice from 1/2 a lemon (freshly squeezed is preferable)
Freshly ground pepper

1. Combine the cooked chicken, celery, diced onion, and parsley in a bowl. Toss to combine.

2. Combine the mayo, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and stir well to combine. (Alternatively, you can just add all the sauce ingredients directly to the first bowl and stir well to combine, but combining them in a separate bowl first makes sure they are evenly distributed). Add to bowl with chicken and stir well to combine all ingredients. Serve on wheat or multi-grain bread.
