      Made this as directed except I run the chicken through my food processor first.I used boneless skinless chicken breast and just boiled them on the stove. This is delicious!! Please don't leave out any of the ingrediants-they all have a place in this salad and make it oh so good! Putting them on mini croissonts to take to a graduation open house for my niece and I'm sure everyone will love them as much as I do. This is way better than "basic" chicken saled-it's the bomb! Thanks for sharing Nimz.
