This is a simple recipe that looks like you worked hard! I like to keep cans of Chicken and Tuna in the pantry... (yes.. you can make this with tuna too!) to throw this together for an impromptu lunch or dinner.

I also make this with leftover chicken breasts. Sometimes I serve it in scooped out tomatoes. Or put a scoop on top of some lime Jell-O.... and don't forget... it is good on toasted bread and crackers too!

In this photo... Mandarin oranges (drained) were added.

Sometimes we add chopped apples too.
