“These are my favorite foods, and we came up with this when we put them all together,” says Alexander. “This is my actual lunch a lot of the time.” While the recipe calls for grilled chicken, you can use any type of cooked chicken or even slices of turkey breast. Alexander likes to have this with milk and some blueberries or raspberries for dessert.
