Norma's Chunky Cranberry Chicken Salad

Norma DeRemer


My own way of using left-overs!
Well today I roasted a small 3 pound chicken for the two of us and had half of it left so I decided to rip the rest of the chicken into small pieces. Add some goodies and had my sweetie taste it. Well, guys and gals he loved it. I have made this in the past when family was visiting; using half of a large chicken. Just added more of all ingredients to it.So here I go again trying to measure out a recipe I made with out any measuring. Will come as close as I can.
