Make You Feel Good Chicken Stew

I created this recipe on my own by adding some ingredients I'd been meaning to use before they spoiled. It was amazing! I couldn't believe how good it turned out. Definitely good for a rainy day (like today) or when you're sick.

3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
2 cups water
14 oz can Swanson vegetable broth
2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies (medium)
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp salt
1.5 Tbsp coarse black pepper

Add all ingredients together. I cooked it in the crock pot all day on low. Enjoy!!

Perfect Chicken Salad

Bruce named this "the perfect chicken salad" because he thought it was the best he'd ever had. I have to agree. It was amazing!! So I wrote everything down and decided to post it.

3 Tbsp light sour cream
3 Tbsp light mayo
1/3 cup relish
2 T minced onion
1 T honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
3/4 cup pecan
3/4 cup coconut
3/4 cup grapes quartered
3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped

Mix it all together and add the chicken at the end. Let cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour. My mom usually toasts the pecans and coconut, but I didn't do that this time. . .maybe that has something to do with how good it was. Hope y'all enjoy it as much as we did.
