Rotisserie Chicken Salad on Pretzel Buns

Inspiration is a fickle thing.

Sometimes it won't bonk you over the head even if you want it to. And sometimes it's just handed to you as a sample at Costco.

The latter was the case when the warehouse store had a sample of Rotisserie Chicken Salad on Pretzel Buns one weekend. We tried it and loved it; it inspired us to make our own recipe.

Soft, chewy pretzel buns. Crunch from celery and onion. Sweetness from lemon juice and mayo. And just a hint of smokiness from the rotisserie chicken.

Yep, fabulous. (And fabulously easy.)
