If you're planning to prepare this appetizer more than a couple of hours ahead, chill the chicken salad by itself, and hold off on filling the shells. After a few hours, the shells can become soggy.

Ingredients

2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, chopped
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt

Preparation

1. Place chicken in a saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 18 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from pan; let cool. Place chicken in a food processor. Pulse 3 to 5 times or until chicken is finely chopped.
