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.
