A simple and quick recipe to use up leftover chicken.The toasted almonds and celery add a delicious crunch,and the apples a pop of sweetness.I like boiled chicken,but of course chicken salad is perfect for leftover roasted chicken that's a little too dry.You can always make more of the dressing if you want it to be moister.
