    applee's Note:

    I found this recipe on the Weight Watchers website. It is for the core plan but can be adapted to the flex - just count the points. It is very easy and tastes great. I add this on top of a salad for lunch or with dijon-roasted potatoes for dinner. Even my husband likes it!

    1. 1
      I used about three boneless, skinless chicken breast halves that were poached using recipezaar Poached Chicken by Dancer^. This usually takes about 20 min to poach the chicken.
    2. 2
      To shred the chicken, use two forks and scrape the chicken into shredded pieces.
    3. 3
      Put the shredded chicken in a medium bowl and add the sliced onions, and chopped cilantro. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Put remaining ingredients - except vinegar (chipotle peppers or the 1/2 jalepeno, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and water) in a blender or bowl of a mini food processor and blend until smooth.
    5. 5
      Pour the blended ingredients over the chicken mixture and toss to coat.
    6. 6
      Add vinegar if necessary - to taste. I will sometimes add some thinly sliced scallions. Can also add some salt and pepper or other seasonings to taste. Sometimes if the shredding of the chicken yields too much, I just add a little more oil and some vinegar to help expand the flavor. This makes a good chicken salad wrap (have to count the wrap as points on weight watchers), and is good the next day too! I usually just eat this as is, or on top of a salad!

      Enjoy and make often!
