Last night I made a salad using canned chicken. I found I had more chicken than I needed for my salad so I mixed the extra with pesto sauce.

What a quick and easy way to make a meal.

If you're ever pressed for time when it comes to making lunch or dinner, why not try this quick sandwich or salad spread. It only requires two steps.

Mix a can of chicken (or tuna) with 2 to 3 Tbsp of pesto sauce (add to your preference).

You can mix into a bed of salad greens or fresh spinach. Or take those greens and pile them on a sandwich (with a bread of your choice) and add a dollop of this spread. Anyway you mix it it's gonna be good.

It would be perfect to serve with crescents and a side of grapes.

This is super simple to make and tasty too.

If you haven't already done so, add this little jar of pesto sauce to your kitchen must haves. It comes in handy when you need to make a meal in a pinch.
