This chicken salad is a great way to use up leftover chicken. None on hand? To poach: place chicken in a skillet and cover with cool water. Add some additional flavors, like carrots, lemon, or a few thyme sprigs. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and very gently simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand in liquid for 10 minutes.
