Chicken Salad Supreme

Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - A great way to incorporate more vegetables into a kid approved recipe. With 3 foods groups and a sweet tangy dressing, this meal is a healthier alternative to chicken fingers and fries.

Ingredients:

    Chicken Salad Supreme
  • 12 frozen breaded chicken fingers
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) Heinz Tomato Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Heinz Sweet Relish
  • 10 cups (2.5 L) torn Romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup (250 mL) each cubed Cheddar cheese and chopped tomato
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) each bacon bits and chopped green onion

Directions:

Prepare the chicken fingers according to package directions. Cool slightly; chop into bite-sized pieces.

Stir the ketchup with the yogurt, mayonnaise and relish until well combined.

Combine the lettuce with the Cheddar cheese, tomato, corn, bacon bits and green onion in a large bowl. Add the chicken pieces and salad dressing to taste; toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Twists

For an even healthier version, use crumbled turkey bacon instead of traditional bacon bits.

For added fibre and crunch, top the salad with whole-wheat croutons.

For a leftover solution, use any extra salad dressing as a sandwich spread or vegetable dip.
