Chicken Salad

This is a salad that my mom used to make. It's great for a summer weekend's lunch and also to send in the kids lunch boxes. Very simple and quick to prepare, which makes it a winner!!! Start boiling a chicken breast with the spices that your kids enjoy. I just add salt, pepper, dried thyme and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. When it's done, let the chicken cool down. While you wait, shred two or three carrots in a bowl,  add one cup of corn and half a cup of pitted olives. They can be black or green. I usually cut them in half  just to make sure there are no pits left. When the chicken is cold, I shred it or cut in small pieces and add to the bowl. Now we just have to season with salt, olive oil and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. You can add other spices that your kids enjoy to make them happier. Toss everything together and serve it with shoestring fries (you can find them at grocery stores like Meijer or Kroger). That's how we traditionally eat this salad, but you can omit the fries to make it healthier.
