Honey Dijon Chicken Salad with Brie and Walnuts

One of my favourite ways to turn a great healthy salad into a full and satisfying workday dinner, especially during grilling season is to add something tasty off the grill to an interesting mix of salad ingredients for a delicious mix of tastes and textures.

This one was particularly good when we added Honey dijon chicken to a terrific salad that included ripe fruit, creamy brie and crunchy toasted walnuts; a fantastic mix and one I’ll definitely be making again.

I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.
