Raspberry Jalapeno Pepper Jelly Chicken Salad

I discovered another delicious use for the Raspberry Jalapeno Pepper Jelly I sell at the Baron York booth…chicken salad.  I WAS going to make my regular chicken salad but discovered I only had two of the needed ingredients (chicken and craisins) …aaaarrrrgggghhhhhh.  But, neccessity is the mother of a new recipe.  Because I didn’t have honey mustard I was going to use mustard, mayo and some honey and make my own version.  Since my honey had crystalized I looked for something else sweet.  Yes, there on the ‘frig door was some RaspberryJalapeno Pepper Jelly.  I added some.  I didn’t have celery but there on the counter was an apple that needed to be used.  Diced it and added it.  Out of walnuts so I crunched up some pecans and threw those in.  Might be one of the best chicken salad versions I’ve made.

So here is the recipe/summary:

1 can of white chicken breast, shredded

1/2 cup of craisins

1 apple, diced

1/2 cup pecans, chopped

1/4 cup mayo

1/4 cup mustard

1/4 cup Raspberry Jalapeno pepper jelly

Mix, let “sit a spell” to mix the flavors.
