“I like to make this with my leftover grilled chicken. The flavor of the smokey chicken goes great with the sweet flavor of this chicken salad. This transforms your leftover chicken, turning leftovers into a gourmet lunch. My recipe is made with boneless skinless breasts, but it is great with any style of grilled chicken. Quickly made with the food processor, the chicken will be in tiny pieces. The texture and flavor goes great with avocado.”
