This was pretty good! I was concerned about the amount of mayo because I was afraid the salad would be too runny. However, I used the full amount anyway, and once I pureed it with the other ingredients, it came out a great consistency. The grated Parmesan really helps to soak up the excess moisture. I chopped the chicken up pretty finely, and the end result was almost a paste-like consistency (but in a good way)--closer to the consistency of tuna salad than the usual chunky chicken salad. I liked it. My only criticism is that I really can't taste the chicken at all. It's overwhelmingly Basil/Parmesan/Garlic. It wasn't because I had bland chicken. I used the breast of a rotisserie chicken, and the chicken was extremely flavorful. It would have been nice for some of that flavor to come out in the salad, but it was totally overpowered by the other ingredients. I think next time I'll try halving the amount of Parmesan and garlic. I didn't even use the full amount of basil this time... just however much was in the little package I got from the store. I may use less basil next time, too. I think the ingredients would complement the chicken quite well, in less abundant quantities.
