Have you ever wondered what to do with that leftover chicken from last nights dinner? Here is a great chicken salad recipe to the rescue. This chicken salad can be served with on a salad, whole grain bread or just served alone. It also is a great salad for picnics. It can be made in a pinch.

I also like to add walnuts and apples to my salad. It gives the chicken salad a bit of sweetness and a great crunchy nutty flavor too.
