A great use for leftover roasted chicken. It's like a warm chicken salad. I made this as written but used mayonnaise (with a little vinegar and sugar mixed in) in place of the Miracle Whip. I loved the swiss cheese and almonds. Thanx for posting this!

This was easy and yummy--it went over especially well with the nine-year old. I used regular mayonnaise and grated part of a block of swiss cheese--next time, I'll make strips and use another few ounces so it's a bit cheesier. I also mixed in about a half cup of leftover turkey gravy. I liked the crunch of the tender but still crisp celery. I served this with cranberry sauce on the side but next time I might mix in dried cranberries, because the sweet-tart accent goes nicely with these flavors. And if I had leftover stuffing, I'd use that instead of the toasted bread cubes.
