Expert Tips

  • Pickleback is bar-speak for a drink that uses pickle juice as a chaser: Follow a shot of straight bourbon with a shot of pickle juice to take the edge off the bourbon. Pork rinds are optional.
  • To make ahead, cool cooked chicken completely in refrigerator before chopping. Assemble salad. Cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours before serving.
