I often have chicken salad on-hand in the refrigerator. It’s a great back up meal when I haven’t had time to cook – or for taking on-the-go. This one sounds especially fun! A nice and easy, one-dish meal for a busy night.

I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!
