Grilled chicken salad - serve warm or chilled?

fldhkybnva | Dec 2, 2012 02:50 PM

I am hosting a salad buffet party tonight with a variety of grilled meats, toppings and dressings. The chicken breast has been marinating and can be cooked whenever. For some reason, I planned to cook it right before the party but then it occurred to me that that would result in salads with fairly warm/hot chicken which wouldn't necessarily provide the cool, refreshing effect that many people enjoy about salads. If it were you and had the extra time would you cook the chicken ahead of time and chill and then let the chill come off for a bit beforehand?
