    What makes it come together in just minutes is using the meat off a chicken I’ve roasted up during my weekly cook-up. I just strip some of the meat off the chicken, chop it up, toss it with some crunchy veggies – and in this case, some green apple for a hint of sweetness – and mix in a bit of homemade mayo for a creamy texture.

    Though this recipe serves one, it’s easy to scale it up and make a big batch for the week ahead.

    The key is to use veggies that provide a textural contrast to the soft chicken. One of my favorite variations of this is to use red cabbage, carrots, and tender sugar snap peas as the base. Sometimes instead of using lemon juice as the acidic component, I’ll substitute white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar. Once you know how to treat this recipe as a template, the world becomes your oyster. The combinations are virtually endless!
