Chicken Salad

It’s Monday again, and time for something easy. It has been awhile since I made chicken salad, so let’s give that a try. You can always buy a roasted chicken at the store to shred up for this dish. I like to take a couple bone in chicken breasts and cook them at 350 degrees for about an hour or so. I let them cool, and then shred them. There are lots of dishes you can make with this shredded chicken. But today, let’s make chicken salad. Try it, you’ll like it!
