4 chicken breasts (1 lb.), skinless & boneless

1/2 cup celery, chopped (About 1.5 Medium Stalks.)

1/3 cup dried cherries

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup fat free mayonnaise
(We used Fat Free Miracle Whip.)

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Optional for Sandwich

16 slices of whole wheat bread
(Choose bread with at least 3 grams of fiber per slice.)

1. Chop up chicken into bite sized pieces. Then heat non-stick pan over medium heat and lightly coat with fat free olive oil spray. Cook the chicken, stirring occasionally until its lightly browned. Pour into a salad bowl.

2. Add the remaining ingredients, celery through mayonnaise and stir together until thoroughly mixed and coated. Cover the bowl and chill for 1 hour.

3. Serve either as a stand alone salad (2/3 cup per serving) or spread 1/3 cup onto toasted whole wheat bread for a sandwich. If you serve it as a stand alone salad it makes 4 servings. If you turn it into a sandwich it makes 8 servings.

Yield: 4 Servings (Salad) or 8 Servings (Sandwich)
