Notes: I call this office chicken because I made it on my lunch break with time to sit and enjoy it with a crossword puzzle! Get trader joe’s just chicken, which is cooked chicken in cubes and nothing else. It is perfect. Especially for office cooking. I love Caesar salad, and this is just a light way to have the same flavors in a salad. The celery adds crunch, and for those that like it, I would even add sliced red grapes to this, but I forgot to buy them at the store. Next time. But this shows you how easy it is to make a dressing, and a fresh lunch at work!
