I love the versatility of chicken, there are sooo many ways to enjoy it. I love this recipe because it’s a nice change from the way I normally prepare chicken. Also, considering how hot is has been lately, all I crave is sandwiches and this one definitely satisfied my hunger! I don’t normally use mayonnaise, but when I do, it is homemade. Most store bought mayonnaise just doesn’t do it for me. If you are going to buy mayonnaise, I would recommend using brands that use avocado oil, otherwise, you can make homemade mayonnaise. Rotisserie chicken comes out best with this recipe; however, you can also cook your chicken and use that instead. If you do that, add 15-20 minutes to your prep time.
You can make this salad and eat it as is, or you can add sandwich bread (your favorite kind), or roll it into wraps. I like using this sandwich bread and sometimes these wraps. Everyone likes to shred chicken differently. If you have a method you like use, feel free to use your that method. I like using two forks by holding the chicken on the cutting board with one fork, while pulling the chicken with the other.
