  1. Chicken - Any cooked/diced or shredded chicken will do here! Some options include:
    1. Poached chicken - Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add chicken (make sure it's submerged in 1-2" of water). Place the lid on top, and bring the water back to a boil. Once boiling, remove the pan from heat and don't remove the lid for 20 minutes. Check internal temp before removing, cooked chicken will be done at 165 F.
    2. Leftover chicken
    3. Canned chicken - be sure to drain and flake with a fork
    4. Rotisserie chicken - shuck and remove any skin.
  2. Almonds - if you can't find slivered almonds, feel free to chop up blanched almonds, and use those instead.
