What to do with your leftover chicken? Make chicken salad! It's so good! I learned to make this from my mom. She didn't measure and added whatever she had on hand as far as the onion went. Could be green, red or yellow onion. I don't really measure either, but I tried to give measurements as listed below. I think it's a good combo!

    I really like this chicken salad on a croissant, or served on lettuce, or a lettuce wrap. Great as an appetizer, to spread on your favorite crackers, or party ryes.
