Chicken Chunks Salad

Recent weather has been extremely hot, so I was planning to make chicken salad sandwich for lunch... since I have chicken breast part left over from the BBQ chicken takeout two days ago...   Yes... I don't really like the breast part that much... I prefer dark meat...   
Then, I changed my mine...  Why not have chicken chunks salad instead?

With salad dressing, the chicken breast is not dry.  The salad tastes good.  This is a good way to use up the left over chicken breasts.  ;)

There isn't really a recipe.  I just sort of mix everything together...  hahahaha... :D

2 cups of cooked chicken breast chunks
1 apple
1/2 onion
some dry parsley flakes   (The green flakes make the salad looks nicer.)

4 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
a bit of salt
a bit of black pepper
(Note: You can change the amount depending on your liking.  For example: if you like the sauce to be sweeter, you can add more honey, etc.)

  1. Chop the onion into very small pieces
  2. Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, honey, salt, black pepper in a large bowl until everything is well combined. 
  3. Add chicken chunks and onions to the large bowl and mix well with the sauce mixture.
  4. In an separate bowl, add water and some salt.  Mix well.
  5. Peel the apple skin and cut the apple into small chunks.   Since we don't want the apple to turn brown in colour, put the apple in salt water (#4) when you are not cutting it yet.
  6. Mix apple chunks and dry parsley flakes with the chicken chunks salad (#3).
  7. Put it in fridge.
