  • This is a great recipe to use up leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken
  • If you don’t have your chicken cooked yet, it’s easiest to place them on a sheet pan and bake on 400 degrees for 20 minutes, and chop and assemble the rest of the salad while they bake. Then you can let them cool, dice and mix into the salad without spending much extra time having to cook the chicken on top of prepping the salad.
  • This recipe is good in the fridge as leftovers for 4 days
