I have a successful business preparing soups and salads for our local Farmer's Market once a week. We have a very popular chicken salad that has now ramped up to the point that we cook 125 lbs of boneless chicken breasts for this salad each week. It takes 4 people 4 hours to prep this salad, with the lion's share of prep time going towards dicing the cooked chicken breasts. Just saw a demo of the Robot Coupe CL50 last week and while that would be great for all the other vegetable prep we do, the RC sales rep said that it will not do the chicken. And that none of the other RC models could either. I've searched the internet and cannot find a processor that will dice the cooked chicken. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Don't know your budget but a buffalo chopper might possibly work for your application. Cost would probably be about double the cost of a Robot Coupe CL50. I have known places to use a big mixer and a paddle with warm chicken breasts broken into big chunks like 3 or 4 pieces. Put in bowl and use top speed. Be sure to cover bowl first though, don't ask how I know this.
Do you want to dice or chop? The RC and buffalo will chop but not dice.
Maybe one of those things "as seen on TV" whopper chopper, probably not sturdy enough.
You may make things a little quicker if you tried a metal mandoline.
Maybe something like this

Yeah neither of my suggestions work for a dice. Sorry brain cramp on my part. You might check out an Urschel model 6 dicer.
I know you said diced, but how about meat claws/meat shredder for the chicken?
