This is a surprisingly tasty and unconventional take on chicken salad. I ate this salad over plain Boston lettuce and it was a refreshing and tasty lunch.

Prepared this for a dinner after church tomorrow, and can't wait to share it. I used almonds & added freshly ground nutmeg. I also used canned chunk chk breast using that liquid for the broth. It's great.
