Chicken: Nearly any boneless, skinless chicken breasts will work in this recipe, as long as they’re not overly flavorful from spices or marinades. As we recommend in the post, you can simply plan on cooking a couple of extra chicken breasts whenever you’re making chicken, so you have extra cooked chicken for this recipe without any extra work. Alternately, store-bought rotisserie chicken is another easy option if you're short on time.
Cheese: If you don't want to purchase a whole block of reduced-fat, sharp cheddar cheese for this recipe, check to see if your store carries individually wrapped cheese sticks (we use Sargento). It's really easy to quickly chop about 6 or 7 of those cheese sticks for this salad, and you'll have the rest of the cheese sticks for grab-n-go snacking.
