Santa Claus totally, utterly spoiled me this year by leaving one of these under my tree. Not with the squash in it, just in case you were wondering. Anyway, I couldn't WAIT to chop up anything in sight, and luckily for me, the instruction manual included a bunch of recipes that conveniently required that ingredients be chopped and sliced and otherwise generally pulverized. And as I was flipping through the book I spotted one that I hadn't run across before...hot chicken salad. Which called for some cooked chicken, which I happily had some if in my fridge. Let the chopping begin!! The recipe called for first chopping up the chicken with some scallions with the regular chopping blade. Roger that....chopchopchopchop.
