Chipotle Chicken Salad/Sandwich Filling

This Chicken Salad is very versatile and can be eaten in cream puffs, in pita bread, on croissants, on rolls or just between two pieces of sandwich bread. I've served this "fancy" as well as "casual". It's a fun summer time lunch, picnic food or a quick dinner.
You choose how you serve it...but just serve it, its delicious!

Chipotle Chicken Salad/Sandwich Filling
2 can of chicken chunks, drained (I like to use the chicken breast chunks)
1 1/2-2 c. red grapes, sliced in half
3/4 c. mayonnaise (NOT salad dressing)
1/2 c. Chipotle Cashews

Bread of your choice: Pita Bread, Cream Puffs, Rolls, Croissants, Bread...etc....

After draining water off of chicken, break pieces up so they aren't in chunks. Add grapes and Mayonnaise and mix well. If you want more or less Mayonnaise, just adjust the amounts to you're liking. Add Chipotle Cashews and stir. Serve immediately.

*if you are making this ahead, wait and add your cashews right before you serve it, they tend to get soft and I like them crunchy...I think you will too.

Happy Cooking~
