4 cups chopped roasted or poached chicken (from whole chicken or 2 large breasts)
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup diced fennel bulb
¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place the chicken, cranberries, fennel, almonds, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley and pepper in a medium bowl and stir with a fork until well combined.
Use in a sandwich or on some mixed greens for a nice lunch salad, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Makes about 4 cups.
