What to do with a boiled chicken?

My spouse is presently in the kitchen making David Chang's ramen broth. He has just removed the whole chicken from the mushroom-kombu broth; any ideas for what to do with this boiled chicken? Pasta sauces? Interesting chicken salads?

It's Midsummer, and my thoughts turned immediately to the Mango Chicken Salad I've been making since back in my catering days. Message me if you'd like the recipe.

Shredded chicken tacos, chicken enchiladas, chicken salad, chicken spaghetti, chicken quesadillas...the possibilities are endless (or nearly so)!

Use with rice paper wrappers. Bean Sprouts, carrots, cabbage etc. With mint and basil.
And a thai dipping sauce. You could simmer the meat up with some coconut milk and thai red curry paste and lime juice and zest.

That would pare very well with the noodles and broth.

Thanks everyone, as usual! I do eat pappdews, so I'm excited about that. I also love pozole and have never made my own. We are about due for a curry/Thai food as well, it has been a few months. Mango chicken salad sounds awesome. I might chicken mole it for mole tacos. You all never let me down, thanks!

A cold Thai Salad. Lettuce, carrots, cabbage, peppers, etc..etc.

With a lime, fish sauce, and use some simple sugar steeped with ginger and fish sauce for salt. And mint and fresh basil; same as the rice paper rolls, but in salad form.
Humm..maybe some toasted coconut flakes for another sweet element with the heat of hot peppers in the salad.

With pleasure! You will love this. I love this! Its always lunch for me in one of ,y first days back in Buenos Aires. These are nice old-fashioned and classic: http://www.chicaseo.com/recetas/mayonesa-de-ave-o-de-pollo/; http://www.mis-recetas.org/recetas/show/18580-mayonesa-de-ave. Here is a Spanish version that includes squash: http://ensalada-de-pollo.recetascomidas.com/. Here is another one, slightly contemporized with more herbs and vegetal elements. http://www.tusrecetasdecocina.com/receta-de-pollo-a-la-mayonesa.html. Let us know how it turns out!

I'm not certain how similar or different this is from the recipes that nogaga provided (I can't read Spanish), but my mom makes this Peruvian dish that I've loved since I was little. We call it yellow chicken, but its known as aji de gallina - made from shredded boiled chicken, aji chili powder, bread, cumin, parmesan cheese, milk, etc. and usually served with sliced boiled eggs and walnuts - we ate it spread on crackers. I'm not certain where to find a great recipe since I think my mom just makes it from taste memory, and it might be altered from an 'authentic' version, but I'm sure there are some great ones out there!
