The best thing about this shredded chicken salad recipe is that it is so versatile! It can be eaten by itself for lunch, as a snack, or combined inside of other recipes for dinner. I am having this chicken salad over nachos this week and I am LOVING it. It can be as simple or as creative as you’d like, yall.
