This recipe is delicious no matter what kind of chicken you use, whether baked chicken breasts, store-bought rotisserie chicken or canned chicken breast! chicken salad, Pesto and Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Salad,

Then choose your bread (or lettuce if you’re watching “carbs”).

My favorite choice is chicken salad on a croissant, but any bread works too!
