This easy-to-make chicken salad is perfect for workday lunches—even if you’re eating at your desk. Use it to top rice cakes or rice crackers or serve it with cooked, cooled quinoa, and you’ve got a quick, filling, healthy lunch in an instant. It’s a great way to use up leftover roasted chicken, but you can also use poached chicken breasts or the meat of a rotisserie chicken instead.
