Chicken salad is a frequent lunch menu item in my house and it’s quick and easy to make. One of many ways to finish off that leftover rotisserie chicken, this recipe elevates it far above your average salad. We love it on top of mixed greens and as the filling for a delicious sandwich.
Salted crema mexicana is my secret weapon that shoots down other chicken salads like a surface to air missile. It adds unbelievable flavor just as it does for authentic tortilla soup. Celery and nuts add a crunchy texture to go along with the savory goodness of roasted chicken.
If you feel like a sandwich instead of a salad, add sliced tomato and a toasted bun. With a few potato chips you have a perfect lunch.
