This was a delicious recipe! Sam's Club has an excellent rotisserie chicken and I asked an employee there what seasonings they used. He said Lawry's prepares and sends a seasoning rub that is specially made for them. Anyway, I used the Sam's Club rotisserie chicken in this and the flavor blends were perfect and it was soo easy! My family scarfed this up.

I was surprised I didn't care for this salad and neither did the rest of my family. I personally like grapes in my chicken salad. I think that was the hang up my husband had - he apparently does not. My daughter is a huge mandarin orange fan, which is one reason I was drawn to this recipe, yet she didn't like it. I think maybe it needed some more flavor. Maybe onion, celery, salt? I don't think I will try this one again.

The fresh dill with the oranges and grapes is great. I served this as a "fork" salad with fresh bread. Rave reviews from my friends.

Wonderful chicken Salad Sandwiches!! I omitted the grapes and seeds because I did not have them in the house and I cooked chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken. All of the adults at our party loved them! I will definately make them again and add the other ingredients too!

This is one of the most delicious recipes I've ever made. And so quick! Last night we had grilled chicken breasts. I grilled a few extra breasts to use for later, and decided to use them for this recipe. Tonight I diced 3 chicken breasts, and added about a cup of mayo (love mayo), a handful of chopped walnuts, a couple handsful of seedless green grapes (quartered), the can of mandarin oranges, some dried dill weed, a sprinkling each of garlic powder and onion powder, and a pinch of salt. Dinner was ready in 5 minutes and my whole family adored it! (Well, the 7 and 4 year olds picked out the walnuts . . .) The mandarin oranges gave it such a wondeful flavor, so fresh tasting. I don't like fruit or chicken that much, but this was delicious. I will be making this all the time.

I served this for a wedding reception and it was a great hit! I think the secret is roasting the chicken and using both the light and dark meat of the chicken. Will use again.

I had made up my mind this recipe was my last attempt at chicken salad as it never turns out the way I want. I was amazed at how great this one is! It is just perfect. I'm sure buying a roasted chicken made a huge difference as well. LOVE IT!!!

This was wonderful chicken salad. I didnt have any sunflower seeds, which I regret because Im sure it would have been great. I cut out the croissants and served these on endive leaves. Very light and very pretty. Rave reviews from tons of people at my party. Thanks for posting.
