Breathing New Life into leftover Poultry.
When I make chicken salad it’s normally because I’ve got some leftover chicken that is kinda dry and unappealing on it’s own. Breast, thighs or even a leftover rotisserie chicken from the store. You can add some mayo and whatever else you’ve got in the fridge and boom, your boring chicken has new life.
Even though I make chicken salad all the time I never seem to make the same recipe twice. Since the weather was getting colder and fall is in the air I wanted some warmer flavors like cinnamon along with some crunch from roasted pumpkin seeds.

Granola style cookie cluster might sound strange but if you break down the ingredients it’s not that weird. Nuts and seeds are used to make chicken salad all the time. Having the Lolli’s cinnamon pecan clusters just saves me from buying a bunch of different ingredients.
