Sweet and Spicy Chicken Salad

This fun chicken salad is great in wraps, on bread or on its own on a plate.

  • 1 c. low fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. chipotle chile powder
  • 1 tsp. coarse salt
Toss the chicken, cranberries, green onions and celery in a large bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients and toss with the chicken mixture. Chill until ready to serve.
