This is a quick and easy way to use up leftover chicken. I like this served as a salad for a light lunch or dinner. It is also delicious in sandwiches, on baked potatoes, rice or pasta. It is also a great buffet dish that can be made the night before in minutes, especially if you do what I do and buy the chickens ready-roasted. Just let them cool down and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to make the dish. Once cool you can pick the meat and toss in the sauce.
