A great way to use left over chicken salad

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These are just plain fun! We used wonton wrappers and, while they took a good bit of time and effort, we were thrilled with how the finished "sacks" turned out. Try them with ranch or bleu cheese sauce as Kim suggests, or serve 'em up with a dollop of honey mustard. Yum-my!
