Chicken Salad and Rolls

So I have never posted any recipes or anything like that before, but several people have asked for my recipe for my roll recipe (from Deanna) and the chicken salad recipe that Trisha gave to me. So for all those people who wanted it....here it is!

Chicken Salad
4 Chicken Breasts (or 3 large cans of chicken)
1 C slivered almonds toasted
3 C grapes sliced in half
1 celery stalk diced
1 C Alfalfa sprouts
1 tsp Bon apatite seasoning (made by McCormick)
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1 C Miracle Whip
2 C Mayonnaise

Mix it all together and serve on croissants of pitas

Quick Rolls
2 C Warm Water
2 Tbsp Yeast
1/2 C Sugar
2 Tsp salt
6 1/2-7 C Flour
1/4 C Soft shortening
1 Egg

Dissolve yeast in the warm water with some of the sugar. (The sugar will help seperate the yeast.) In large bowl add remainder of the sugar, salt and 1/2 the flour. Add yeast mixture. Beat thoroughly for 2 minutes. Add egg and shortening. Mix well. Put in the rest of flour until flour is able to handle. Grease bowl; turn dough over and put in fridge--Chill. Shape;cover; and let rise until double (1 hour-1 1/2 hours)
Bake @ 400 for 12-15 minutes.
If you are in a hurry you can skip the fridge and shape and let rise....They will work!

Both these recipes I use all the time! Enjoy!

Miracle Whip and mayonnaise? Mm, sounds good. Seriously though, how's the view from up there sitting on the fence? Oh, snap! Do you need a winter coat? Cuz that was cold. No, I kid. That looks good.
