Cilantro Chicken Salad

I love Chicken Salad but hate the calories and fat that is usually found in the traditional chicken salad.  I found this recipe in Gina's blog and it's so yummy.  I would have never thought of putting cilantro in my chicken salad but it gives it such a wonderful flavor.  It is great for a quick lunch over some greens, on some low calorie bread for a yummy chicken salad sandwich, or as an appetizer with some low calorie crackers.
