Here’s a colorful, party appetizer from Gail Cawsey that’s delicious and so simple. Rotisserie (or leftover) chicken keeps it quick, and the seasonings and splash of lime juice lend fantastic flavor. "In fact, laughs the Fawnskin, California cook, "my husband likes this snack so much that he often requests it for dinner!"
