Then, take your chicken salad mixture and fill your lettuce boats up high. Top with any additional dried cranberries that you may like and slivered almonds. This recipe does not take long to prepare, but when I make it, I like to make it with five or six large chicken breasts so that I have leftovers for lunch the following day. Enjoy!
