This recipe was inspired by a deli back in my hometown. They made a yummy chicken salad, with mayo and artichokes, that was very popular. So, I decided to recreate it with my own twist, and I think it's even better than the original. The salad is a combination of slightly smoky grilled chicken, tangy seasoned & marinated artichoke hearts and a mayo salad dressing. It's quick and easy, yet elegant and divinely delicious; perfect for a special lunch, brunch buffet or busy-day dinner. Use it to stuff tomatoes, as an appetizer on crackers or party bread rounds, or simply on a bed of lettuce. Yum!
