Marinate them overnight in chicken broth to juice them up, then use them in a salad that has plenty of olive oil and/or full fat dressing. Maybe some bacon too.

Use them for an enchilada cassarole using low carb tortillas and layering with some onion, lots of cheese and green enchilada sauce. Or chop up the chicken and use it in chicken salad.

The chicken might be good substituted for the ham in this recipe:

Ham, cut in small chunks
Celery, cut in small chunks
Green onion, coarsely chopped (optional)
Dill pickle relish or finely chopped sugar free sweet pickles
Pepper, to taste

Put the ham, celery and green onion in a food processor. Pulse until ham is minced, but still slightly chunky. Put in a bowl and mix in some mayo, pickle relish and pepper. Don't add salt; the ham and relish are salty enough. Chill a few hours before serving. The carb count will vary depending on the amount of ham and other ingredients used, but figure about anywhere from 1-3 carbs per serving.

I would layer chunked chicken, sauted mushroom chuncks, and artichoke hearts in a cassarole and cover with an Alfredo sauce seasoned with a little rosemary and sherry.

Or, I would make a variation on King Ranch Chicken. The original layered chicken, tortillas, and cheese with a sauce made from a can each of cream of chicken and cream of muchroom soup to which were added butter, sauted onions, and a can of Rotel tomotoes with green chiles. I make this now, leaving out the tortillas and it is still very good. I would use one can of soup (about 50 carbs total) and add about 1/2 cup of sour cream.

I highly recommend trying Debbie's Chicken Salad from the recipe room. Very good!
