Weightwatchers Creamy Chicken Salad

The Lunch Chronicles 

Lunch is one of those meals that really, after a while on Weightwatchers, we begin to eat the same thing all the time because we know exactly how many propoints is in the meal.  Salads.  In my opinion can be so dull and boring and quite honestly not near fill a gap in my tooth let alone my stomach. 

I was recently away on holidays and i decided to have a salad for lunch.  This one sounded nice enough and i thought id give it a go.  It was absolutely delicious.  The chicken was creamy and kinda spicy.  Not your usual just plain boiled or grilled chicken, i liked it so much that i decided to try it at home and i really loved it.

This will definitely shake up a boring salad.  I had mine with zero Propoint tomato soup and Melba toast with  cheese.  Really filling and delicious
