This recipe is really just basic chicken salad. The difference is that you use tasty smoked chicken instead of bland canned chicken or plain chicken breast. I personally recommend my smoked chicken recipe but if you already have a favorite, use it. You could also use a store bought rotisserie in a pinch.
Pick the 1/2 chicken to get all of the meat off, being very careful to remove all bones. Chop the chicken into small 1/4 inch cubes. Make sure you get some of the tasty skin in there too! That's where a lot of the cool flavors hang out.
Process the celery and onion in a food processor to "almost" your desired consistency. Add chicken, mayo, salt and pepper and pulse a few times to mix together.
Use a knife or food processor to chop celery, onion, and 1/2 of the half chicken (that's a 1/4 chicken) to your desired consistency. In a large bowl, stir together with the rest of the chicken, mayo, salt and pepper.
Let sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving. It's great as a sandwich (toasted bread, lettuce, tomato) or just plain with crackers.
