Italian Chicken Salad



We have always eaten a basic chicken salad. That's what we like. I thought, what can I do to boost flavor without adding too many ingredients? I love Italian seasoning & garlic, so I baked it off in the oven to perfect doneness, so the chicken was still moist. Loved this on crackers too! Simple idea, but super flavor!
