Ingredients

    7 oz cooked chicken breast, shredded or diced
    2 tbsp light mayonnaise
    1 small scallion, chopped
    2 tsp lime juice
    2 tbsp chopped cilantro
    salt and pepper
    pinch garlic powder
    pinch of cumin
    pinch of chile powder

Directions

Combine chicken, mayonnaise, scallions, lime juice, and cilantro. Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and chile powder. Add a little chicken broth if chicken seams too dry, 1 tbsp at a time.

*To Poach: Cover chicken breast in broth in a small pot, add water if it doesn't cover the chicken. Add salt and pepper, a piece of celery and it's leaves (you could add herbs like parsley, garlic, onion, or whatever you want) and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover tight and let it sit for 15-20 minutes or until thickest part of the breast registers 160 degrees. Chicken will be cooked through. Let it cool and cut into small cubes.
