BBQ Chicken and Chipotle Salad

"This has to be the most requested recipe in my way-too-vast collection. It comes from Chiffonade Chef on the FC site, and she submitted it to Gourmet magazine some years ago. It was accepted and printed almost immediately. It's so easy, and so tasty, you will see why."

    Delicious change from the usual chicken salad recipes. This recipe made for a Sweet, spicy, and crunchy lunch. Served with pita bread but could be enjoyed on its own as well.

    This was so flavorful! We had them in lettuce cups. I did replace half the mayo with sour cream. Next time I may use all sour cream. I think some bacon would be good in this also. This is so versatile. I bet this dressing would be good over potato salad. Maybe even with a little lime added. Thanks for this excellent recipe!

    I really enjoyed this one. I liked that mayo mixed with BBQ flavor, plus the added chipolte spice. We are a "low spice household" so I only added 1 pepper, which was the perfect amount. I used chicken from Recipe #33671 (crockpot whole chicken). Next time I will use larger pieces of chicken, otherwise, the texture was like chicken salad. Still with awesome taste, but for texture, larger pieces next time for me. The left overs were used for sandwiches with american cheese and crispy onions. YUM! I think next time I may not use the leaf on the first go around, but use bread, tortilla or something to hold this delicious mixture. This was great! Thank you!

    Good. The kids liked it and a great use for leftover chicken. Served it in a pita with a few lettuce leaves.
