Add a handful of pre-cooked chicken.  This was just some leftover chicken I found in the fridge that I hoped my wife didn't have plans for it.  If the chunks are too big, chop them with your spatula.

Cut the celery into bite sized slices. They should be about the same size as the bits of chicken.  Add to the chicken in the pan and stir.

It was a great success. Don't think there's nothing to cook. Be creative. I had no clue what I was doing… just grabbed a few ingredients and tried. I might try the bacon bits next time.
