I love to make chicken salad from rotisserie cooked chicken. The flavor is wonderful, and the chicken is usualy so tender I find I'm able to make use of alot of the bird. I just add some mayo, fresh rosemary, halved red seedless grapes, salt and pepper, and that makes an incredible chicken salad!

You can lighten up this recipe by substituting plain or lowfat vanilla yogurt for the sour cream. Also, try adding grated carrot, raisins and a dash of cumin powder.
