EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Deli chicken or rotisserie chicken are easy ways to get cooked chicken for this salad.

Cook almonds over medium heat, 5 to 7 minutes, until golden brown. Stir the almonds frequently so they don’t burn. Remove them from the skillet when they’re done to prevent further cooking.
