RECIPE BACKSTORY
A great way to use up leftover chicken, or to spice up your usual chicken salad. I use grilled chicken breasts, but you can easily use a good old rotisserie chicken from the market. The leftover mayonnaise mixture makes a fantastic sandwich spread. You can also use it as a marinade for chicken!
