This is an excellent way to use leftover chicken. Just remove the skin and pull the meat off the bone. Using BBQ’d, fried or roasted chicken will add an interesting flavor dimension. Using some dark meat is fine and a personal preference. Be cautious adding additional salt, as the chicken will likely be salted from its previous use. Of course, if you use leftovers you can skip steps 1 - 3!
I prefer to prepare this with shredded chicken, however if you would prefer to chop or dice the chicken, that is perfectly fine.
If you don't have fresh basil, you can substitute 1 teaspoon of dried basil.
Want to spice it up a bit? Remove the seeds and membrane from a jalapeno, dice it up and toss it in!
