How to make it

  1. Pick the meat off of the chicken bones (discard bones or save to make chicken broth), shred the large pieces with your fingers into bite-sized pieces, and place in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if needed.
  2. Spoon 1/2 cup of the mixture on desired choice of bread; ciabatta, croisant, or white or wheat loaf slices. Serve.
