I am not sure on this yet. I think the way you prepare the chicken and the brand of cole slaw dressing make a big difference in this. I boiled/poached some chicken breasts to make this, so there was not much flavor to my chicken. I used regular marzetti's coleslaw dressing. Although this was a decent chicken salad, there wasn't much flavor beyond the expected onion/celery flavor. It seemed kind of ordinary to me. I will try a couple of things next time. First, I will cook my chicken with some salt and maybe a bay leaf to give some extra flavor to the chicken. Next, I will try another coleslaw dressing or maybe add a little more for more oomph. Also, I really like cranberries in my chicken salad, so I will add a handful to give a little extra sweetness. Overall, it was a very basic chicken salad, not much different than if you made with mayo and a little sugar like I usually do. *Update* I made this with diced grapes and increased the dressing and mayo to taste and I really liked it. 4 stars with my modifications, 3 stars without.
