Big Box to the Rescue!

watermelonThere are times in life when the stress rises. This week is one of those times. All of our year end events are taking place, one is a party for a group of ladies who faithfully serve in leadership ministry. Being that girl who is comfortable around the kitchen, I am responsible for putting the food together. Usually, I am excited for the opportunity to cook something special but this week it’s not the only event that is drawing on my energies.

So, it’s Big Box to the rescue! I was able to put a menu together for fifty that would require a minimal work in my kitchen. In fact, the advance prep only took about an hour. I chose rotisserie chicken that is already boned to make into Cashew Chicken Salad Sandwiches. We will also enjoy Deviled Eggs, two different pre-made vegetable salads, watermelon and assorted cookies. Easy Peasy. And I believe everyone will be satisfied not so much because of the food, but that they spent time laughing and enjoying each others company.

It’s easy to impress me. I don’t need a fancy party to be happy.
Just good friends, good food, and good laughs. I’m happy. I’m satisfied. I’m content.

This is my daughter’s recipe. Enjoy!

Genny’s Cashew Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I like to serve this simple recipe on crescents. I get the mini crescents from Winco. They make the perfect little finger sandwiches.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, baked and diced
4 green onions, chopped
2/3 cup cashews (the cashew pieces are fine)
1 cup mayo (light mayo is fine)
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients and serve as a sandwich.

A variation can also be made by using pecans. Equally delicious.
