I swear BBQ chicken salad never gets old, especially when you have some fun stacking it on top of some sinful little puff pastry squares. I had some leftover BBQ chicken and thought this would be a great way to jazz up an old favorite. It’s kind of like having your bread and salad piled high in one fun little plate.
I am so excited to be visiting AZ the rest of this week. I get to spend some time with my family that I miss like crazy and then of course go to the Dental Convention I’m not so excited about. Any excuse to go back home is fine by me! Thanks to my sweet husband for being so understanding.
So, now that I’ve rambled, have some fun playing with your food this week and try these fabulous Salad Stackers!
