Recipe

I am always looking for ways to make simple twists on classic recipes to create new and interesting flavors that keep me from getting bored. This is both because I love to create new recipes, but also because if I eat the same food over and over again, I get bored and turn to bad food. This recipe is a twist on a chicken salad recipe I often make for lunch using leftover or store bought cooked chicken. To make a creamy base for the chicken salad, I like to use a combination of either mayo or yogurt and sour cream and then in this version, add lots of spice to mimic the flavors of blackened chicken. Then add some veggies and wrap it up in lettuce or stuff it into a sandwich.
