So here’s something exciting: today is the first day of the Mixed Conference for Food Bloggers and I’m super excited. I get to participate in a workshop with Helen Dujardin of Tartelette (she’s also the author of the book Plate to Pixel) and Tami Hardeman-Boutte of Running with Tweezers (yeah ATL)! I’m so excited. However, since you can’t be at the conference with me, I’ve made you a Cranberry Chicken Salad. Since I was going out of town for the conference, I wanted to try to use up the perishable food in my refrigerator before I left.

Ah Thanksgiving. Family drama aside, the only thing better than Thanksgiving dinner is Thanksgiving leftovers. Seriously, I live for day after turkey sandwich, topped with cranberry sauce and gravy and, if you’re lucky, some awesome stuffing. So good.

So instead, I was left trying to cover the not so subtle rumbling of my tummy as the clock approached 7:30, let alone 9:20, which is when we actually ended class.

  If you made the OMG Roast Chicken the other day, you might have leftovers now that could be made into yet more tasty dishes. Or you could just want this dish and run out and buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store…whichever. This dish hearkens from the oh so wonderful cookbook A Bird in the Oven and Then Some, by Mindy Fox. I know I mentioned this book in the roast chicken post, but it bears mentioning again. Not only does this book contain recipes for the actual roast chicken, but also recipes for sides to go with the chicken, salads and dishes containing the chicken, soups and so much more. Wonderful.
