Turn this wonderful savory dinner into the world’s most flavorful chicken salad for lunch. Remove leftover chicken from the bone (discard the skin) and cut in 1/2-inch pieces. Combine with chopped celery, carrots, red onion and just enough light mayonnaise to moisten. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve between slices of hearty whole grain bread.
