Need alternative to my homemade chicken salad

sergioq | Jun 4, 201701:19 AM     16

Using my crockpot I cook chicken breasts to make them super soft and with mayo and Dijon I make a great chicken salad. This way when I get home late from work I don't order out expensive or fattening foods.

Despite the mayo, my sandwich is still healthier.

But I need to change it up.

Can anyone give me any protein substitutes that don't sound or aren't gross? I thought of a ribs bbq sauce idea. But I think as a spread/salad that might be gross.

Very open to suggestions.

Thanks ahead.
