    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Adapted from Woman's Day magazine. I changed all of the ingredients to lower fat versions, but the original called for the full fat stuff, so by all means use whichever you prefer. Good way to use up a little leftover corn and chicken. If you prefer to not buy pre-bagged salad, just add a little shredded red cabbage,carrots, and sliced radishes to your favorite salad greens. You may also sub any type of cooked beans you prefer - chickpeas, kidney beans, black-eyed peas, etc. Shredded leftover pork or turkey would also be nice in this.

      Excellent! I added more salsa to mine, but my husband loved it as written. The chicken I used was leftover mojo rotisserie. Once in indiviual bowls, I tossed mine mixing all the flavors. The result was delicious.

      My husband and I look forward to leftover chicken now. And it presents nice enough that we even invite friends over. Thanks, this has become a regular in our house now.
