This is a great way to use up leftover chicken! Didn't have any basil or spring onion so did it without and it was still lovely. Made the sauce using creme fraiche instead of mayo as I didn't have any and this worked fine too. Yummy, looking forward to it for lunch tomorrow!!

I love this dish, have added all sorts in the past, including peppers, mushrooms and bacon. I can't have it cold though, got to be warm...mmm.... :o)

As I live in Greece I'm always looking for something simple for the hot evenings here.....& this is just the thing! I poach chicken breasts with some "Chicken Seasoning" & leave to cool in the water, which keeps the meat nice & moist. Don't find spring onions here very often, so use sliced red onion & I always add a couple of thinly sliced Roasted Red Peppers in Oil (a very useful Greek product).
