Chile Chicken Salad

One of the best things about roasting a chicken is using the leftovers for chicken salad. As I was chopping the leftover chicken from the Bean Butt Chicken both Matt & I had the idea to use the Fragrant Chile Rub we used while roasting as the seasoning for the chicken salad. Well, this was just a brilliant idea as it was probably one of the best chicken salads we've ever made.

The rub did not make it too spicy but gave it a really nice, almost smoky flavor. We added green onions & slivered almonds to the salad to give it a nice crunch.

Chile Chicken Salad

2 c cooked chicken, chopped
1/2 c mayonnaise (more if the salad is a little too dry)
1 t fragrant chile rub
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 c slivered almonds

Mix everything together.  Serve on bread or a bed of salad greens.  I like it with some cherry tomatoes on top for a little sweetness.
