I have been on a chicken salad kick lately. I used to love it when I was a kid and for some reason I got away from it for a while. But I am back on it now and I have been making tons of it lately. I usually eat it on bread, but I got this idea make lettuce wraps out of them recently and they came out awesome. Like, seriously awesome. I have eaten these Loaded Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps every day for a week straight. They are really easy to make and I love that I can make and serve them fairly quickly.
