Default Salvage Tough Chicken Breast?

I baked six chicken breasts and they came out quite tough. I am pretty sure it
was the chicken; normally I do not overcook and get nice, tender meat. But,
for whatever reason, these breasts just started out tough and ended up tough.

What can I do to salvage it? Cut it up into small pieces and make a chicken
salad? Can anything be done to save it? Thanks.

Yeppers, at this point I give up on serving whole breast and start making
soup, a la king, pot pies, etc.

Chicken salad works. You can also shred it and use it for chicken tacos.
