2 Cilantro Chicken Salad

Today was the first day of basketball tryouts . . . and I got to school SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO early! :-) Cooking a huge dinner is not in the future the next couple of days! This is a perfect quick/healthy dinner or lunch! Parker and Emily ran over to my house this weekend and I literally threw this together in a couple minutes and they both LOVED it! :-) Enjoy the colder weather tonight and don't forget to VOTE! :-)

7 oz cooked chicken breast, shredded or diced

*To Poach: Cover chicken breast in broth in a small pot, add water if it doesn't cover the chicken. Add salt and pepper, a piece of celery and it's leaves (you could add herbs like parsley, garlic, onion, or whatever you want) and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover tight and let it sit for 15-20 minutes or until thickest part of the breast registers 160 degrees. Chicken will be cooked through. Let it cool and cut into small cubes.
