Leftover Rotisserie Chicken...never again!

Okay, If you are keeping track ~ this is a Life's small lesson ~

I live alone so buying a whole rotisserie chicken means I'm going to be creative with alternative combinations for that big bird. Here is my all-time favorite recipe for left over bird!

Pull the chicken/turkey off the bone and then chop it up and put in a large bowl

Depending on the amount of chicken leftover, peal, core, and chop up 1 to 3 apples *put the slices in a Ziploc and sprinkle just a little lemon juice in it and shake the apple slices around until coated - this keeps them from turning brown - next lay them on a paper towel to drain for a few minutes before adding to the bowl of chopped chicken

Grab chopped pecans and add 1/2 to 1 Cup of these to the chicken, based on your taste preference

Now, stir in Mayo, again to your preferred taste and consistency and you're done

See - EASY! Chicken Apple Salad

You can now use this as a sandwich filler, topping for a salad, or just straight out of the bowl. (I'll never tell!)

Enjoy your next rotisserie chicken with all the confidence that you will finish the whole bird.

OH! I have no pictures as this dish doesn't last long enough to photograph.

Happy Cooking ~

Oklahoma Earthquake

WOW! Did you feel the earth move this morning around 9am? This was my first earthquake and I probably would not have gone with my first explanation if my co-worker had not been through an earthquake before and confirmed it was just that!

I have been visiting a certain webpage today...
and clicked on Did You Feel It? to see the particulars. You can also report an earthquake if you want. Oklahomans seem to be very vocal on this quake as there have been more than 6 thousand reports on this event. People from Texas to Kansas felt this quake!

If you've been wondering about additional pictures of my tree, it has not turned yet so just keep checking in...

Hope the rest of your day stays steady under your tootsies ~
