Leftover grilled chicken thighs...what's for dinner?

I had a package of chicken thighs I needed to cook last night, but my husband was really craving seafood....after I took the salmon/asparagus/corn we were having off the grill, I threw the chicken thighs on. So now, I have a pound of already grilled chicken thighs in my fridge...anyone got ideas on how I can serve them tonight?
this is nothing elaborate, but i always love a good chicken salad and thigh meat is great for it... just add some mayo (not much), slivered almonds and seedless purple grapes and serve on a bed of lettuce with olives, vinaigrette and some good bread.
i may be suggesting this b/c it's what i'm eating for lunch right now. :)
I'm replying to myself because I came up with a great idea! I went to the local asian market and got rice paper wrappers (dried), rice noodles (fresh), and with red leaf lettuce, cilantro, basil, slivered carrots and cucumber, mung bean sprouts, fish sauce and hot sauce, put a big bowl of warm water on the table and everyone made their own rolls! I heated my already grilled chicken thighs in the oven, and used some leftover grilled shrimp too - cut them into small pieces. It rocked!
Irrelevant now, but for the future, I usually shred or cube or slice leftover chicken and add to cacciatore, and let stew and moisten...
chowhounders to the rescue once again!!! I've got a package of thighs in the fridge that i need to cook NOW...great ideas...thanks to all!
