We always have so much fun with WKRG on their cooking segment! This week, we've put a spin on a regular chicken salad recipe by adding the sweetness of apricots, the crunch and texture from the carrots and a fresh bite by adding cilantro to the mix. Its super easy to make and feeds a crowd! We hope you'll try this recipe and let us know what you think!
Apricot Ginger Chicken Salad
1 large roasted chicken, meat removed and chopped

Mix chicken, apricots, green onions, carrots and cilantro in a medium bowl and set aside. Mix ingredients for Apricot Ginger Dressing in a small saucepan and cook over low heat until melted – let cool. Toss the dressing with the chicken mixture and serve on top of the romaine ribbons.
