Cranberry Honey Glazed Walnut Chicken Salad

This is not your typical chicken salad.  Inspired by a local restaurant, I came up with my own version of the best chicken salad I have ever made.  Just take a few minutes to glaze your walnuts and this salad comes together in minutes.  Serve on pita bread, in a wrap or as a simple salad on romaine leaves.

Honey Glazed Walnuts

1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
3 Tbsp. honey

Melt butter in a medium size saucepan.  Add walnuts and honey and stir until fragrant and thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Spread out on parchment paper or lightly sprayed foil to cool.  

You won't be able to stop munching on these!

Chicken Salad

2 cups cooked, cubed chicken
1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup Honey Glazed Walnuts
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and chill.
