This is an excellent recipe and does taste better if chilled overnight. Using a rotisserie chicken makes the recipe SO easy. I have also added a large can of pineapple chunks, drained. Served on a large platter with papaya and avocado it makes a nice luncheon entree.

Excellent recipe even if you skip many of the ingredients. I often do a plain chicken/papaya version during the week. So unique, easy quick prep and versatile I have had this for breaky, lunch and dinner and never tire of it.

I made this Chicken salad for my three adult daughters for our mothers day lunch. They loved it.
