Peachy Chicken Salad

Day before thanksgiving was busy very day for me in the kitchen.I wanted to do as much prep ahead as possible and whatever that i can cook in advance i wanted to do.So it is odd to think that i don’t wanted to cook meal for us that day. Previously we have ordered pizza.Now we live bit far to order pizza and i didn’t had anything  that i can just throw in the oven.I think i had some idea what my mood will be like that day,so i had picked up Croissants.

I thought,chicken salad sandwich would be easy.It doesn’t take active standing by the stove time.I have a go to chicken salad recipe,which i have made number of times.So that would have been the obvious choice.However i noticed,i had peaches and that changed my plan.I had watched chicken salad with peach chutney in one of  FN show and ever since i wanted to make it.So it started.I ended up making peach chutney and boiling chicken and the result was one yummy chicken salad sandwich.

My measurements are eyeballed based on what i remember from the show.I can not find the link. It was well liked by my husband,who was accustomed to previous version 🙂

Peach chutney has bunch of ingredients but it doesn’t take time to cook.I like the idea of texturizing the meat by grinding some and keeping some shredded.
