Chicken salad with edamame

So the other day, we had some leftover grilled chicken drumsticks sitting around. Now normally no one wants to eat slightly old grilled chicken that is a little dry and bland...but then I realized that it is the perfect item to turn into chicken salad! And since I'm not the biggest fan of mayo, I decided to change things up a bit. Here is my healthy-ish and damn delicious version of chicken salad.

3-4 chicken drumsticks, grilled (cooked in any way, or any piece of chicken that is about 1 cup of chicken pieces)
2 tbs yogurt
1 tbs fresh squeezed lemon
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 cup edamame (shelled)
Sea salt
Black pepper

bowl; spoons; sharp knife

Prep work:

Cooking Instructions:
Take any skin off the chicken and discard; pull off the chicken meat and put it into a bowl. Once you have done that with all the chicken, add the yogurt, stir, and add the lemon juice to it. Once they have been mixed, add the curry powder, cumin, and a pinch of salt and some black pepper to the bowl. Once everything has been mixed together, add the edamame to the bowl, mix to incorporate, and it's ready to serve. Tastes great in a pocket pita, or for something really fresh and crunchy, spoon the salad into a large lettuce leaf (iceberg, romaine), or for some extra color, red cabbage.
