Light Chicken Salad

The Georgia General Assembly declared Georgia the official “Poultry Capital of the World” in 1995, and then-Governor Zell Miller signed the legislation. Broilers are the state’s largest single agricultural commodity. In fact, if Georgia were a country, it would be the sixth largest in broiler production.

Serves six.
