- Pre-cooked and portioned chicken products is available at most grocery stores and from online retailers, such as Amazon. Alternatively, you can buy larger sized containers and portion it yourself.
- If you have leftover cooked chicken or tuna, you can chop or shred it up and use it too! If it’s a little dry, mix it in a bowl with a little water, broth, balsamic or seasoned vinegar, or a few drops of fat-free salad dressing (not included in nutritional analysis).
* Some ingredients in this recipe contain fish, tree nuts, and soy. Salad dressing or mayonnaise may contain milk/dairy and/or egg. Check ingredient statements for all packaged foods to be sure they meet your dietary needs.
