"I'm a huge fan of chicken salad and have tried so many different variations over the years, but this one is by far my favorite. Simple, refreshing flavors and great texture make it wonderful on a sandwich or just served over a bed of lettuce!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I thought this was a fresh, basic chicken salad. Really good! I didn't have any relish so I was worried about that. But I think that's why it had a simple flavor and I kinda liked that for a change. Also, I used onion powder in place of the onion and did half sour cream and mayo for that part. I really enjoyed the pecans and the texture that brought. Great recipe!
Thank you for not having fruit in the recipe. When are people going to realize that in a real chicken, grapes have no place.
I left out the pecans, celery and sugar, but this was still a really good chicken salad. I also substituted lemon pepper for lemon juice and cut the mayo (miracle whip) by a 1/3. I'll be using this recipe again. Healthy and tasty.
This recipe is very good but I will probably cut the ground pepper in half next time. It really overpowered the sandwich. Otherwise, it was delicious and I will definitely make again!
This is a great chicken salad. I,however, like my chicken shredded but that doesn't take away the melding of the spices. Thanks for a keeper.
Very good. Poached the chicken with 1 bay leaf, a few pieces of whole black pepper, and one crushed garlic clove, about 12 mins. Chopped very fine. Omitted relish, out of sugar so omitted sugar as well. Squeezed the juice of one lemon wedge. Only used about 1 tsp of black pepper. Added hot paprika. Refrigerated overnight.
We are in love with this chicken salad! I used almonds, instead of pecans, because my husband and son prefer them.
