A Quick Weekend Lunch


While pretty much the entire population of New York City was in Central Park yesterday, I was at home taking care of a sick boyfriend. Feeling particularly lazy and not up for ordering in, I decided to search the fridge for something to whip up for lunch. What I came up with was surprisingly satisfying.

Poppy Seed Chicken Salad



Ingredients:
1 large cooked chicken breast, cut into small cubes
1 apple, cored and diced
1 tbs of poppy seeds
2 tbs of mayonnaise
1 tsp of lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small handful of slivered almonds
1 small handful of dried cranberries

Instructions:
Mix together mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss with chicken, almonds, apple, poppy seeds and cranberries. That’s it! A quick and easy lunch for when you’re feeling lazy. Recipe serves two.
