It’s Monday, I hope you had a great weekend.  I was so excited for the season premier of Downton Abbey finally last night.  Two hours of Downton flew by!  It is so nice to curl up on the couch on a Sunday night with a crackling fire and watch my favorite show.  This past weekend was also my 39th birthday.  I had a lovely dinner out at my favorite restaurant and knowing that I had Downton to look forward to took the sting out about turning 39 a little bit. 

I always purchase the bulk, family pack of chicken breast at the grocery store.  It last me a few weeks and I get a ton of meals out with it.  I freeze some and I cook a pound or two to keep stashed in the refrigertor to have on hand.  It’s great to toss on salads and to whip up chicken salad for lunches or a quick dinner.  My Curry Chicken Salad is one of my favorites.

During the holidays I made my Bruschetta for several gatherings.  Leftover Bruschetta and some cooked chicken I had on hand inspired me to make this recipe.  It quickly became a favorite of mine.  I love it simply in a wrap, but it’s also great on a ciabatta roll, a buttery croissant, or on some thick slices of fresh Italian bread and toasted on the panini.  You can also top it on a leafy, green salad or just enjoy it alone.

If you love a variety of chicken salads for sandwiches like I do, this is another one you will definitely enjoy!
