Expert Tips

  • No leftover cooked chicken on hand? You can buy frozen chopped cooked chicken, canned chunk chicken or thick slices of cooked chicken from the deli and cut into cubes.
  • Like it hot? Go ahead and increase the chili powder used in the salad dressing. You can also add a few drops of red pepper sauce to increase the heat.
