Cranberry Chicken Salad

My team at work decided to have a pre-Christmas pot luck, and chose to bring Cranberry Chicken Salad.  This is a recipe that I learned while working at a restaurant.  It is healthier than most chicken salad recipes because I use low fat mayonnaise mixed with cranberry sauce as the dressing - instead of just mayonnaise like most other chicken salads.

This recipe calls of diced baked chicken.  Here is a link to Quick and Easy Baked Chicken which is what I always use to make this.

You will need:
3 baked chicken breasts, diced
1 cup low fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup cranberry sauce
2/3 cup celery
2/3 cup cashews (halves and pieces)
salt and pepper to taste

Step 1:
Mix the mayonnaise and the cranberry sauce together.

Step 2:
Add the chicken, celery and cashews and mix together.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3:
Serve either on bread or on a bed of lettuce.
