Chicken Salad Mix

Place 12 chicken tenderloins in a crock pot. Cook on high for 3 1/2 hours. When chicken is cooked, transfer it to a cutting board and shred with a fork and knife. It will shred beautifully.

In a bowl mix together the following:

Shredded chicken
1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
1/2 cup veganise or olive oil mayonnaise
1 small red onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 celery heart, diced
1 tsp sea salt or to taste
1/2 tsp ground pepper or to taste
2 tsp mustard
1 T. dill relish (find one that does not have any added sugar)

If more moisture is needed, I add a little coconut milk. You can also use low-fat milk.

I like to serve this on whole wheat toasted bread, in a whole wheat pita, in a wrap with avacado, or with crackers such as Triscuits.

*Optional - Sliver and toast some almonds. Let cool. Add to the mix right before serving. Grapes or unsweetened cranberries are a nice addition as well.
