A very good base chicken salad recipe. We jazz ours up by varying different items: chopped pickle or relish seedless grapes sliced in half toasted almonds or pecans. I sub salad dressing for mayo also. As far as this being too soupy for some; as this recipe sits overnight in the fridge (which really makes it tastier) the liquid is absorbed. Read More

We all thought the coleslaw dressing made the chicken salad too sweet. Other than that it was pretty good and very easy to make. Read More

I have been searching for a good chicken salad sandwich recipe and have finally found a good one. My husband and his family loved it! I don't have a food processor so I just cut the chicken into small pieces and stirred it all together and it was great! Hard to stop eating it! Read More

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. There is a restaurant that used to be in my town that had the best chicken salad. I could never figure out how to make it but I think this was it. Thank you! Read More

This is some of the best chicken salad ever! I am used to chuncky chicken salad so I wasn't sure if I'd like it in the food processor - I absolutely love it. I made my own coleslaw dressing. This is great on toast or on crackers. Read More

I too was looking for a great basic chicken salad. This was excellent! I used two left-over chicken breasts that I had poached in broth white wine & some herbs. I used my Pampered Chef food chopper to cut the chicken to our preferred size. Because the chicken breasts were not large I adjusted the mayo & coleslaw dressing down a little. The only addition I made was a sprinkle of dried tarragon. Absolutely delcious! Read More

A nice twist on "regular" chicken salad. The cole slaw dressing and lemon are the difference of course. It was a bit runny but adding more chicken should clear that up. I'll do that next time. My wife who doesn't hesitate to express displeasure when she doesn't like one of my recipes definitely enjoyed this one. Read More
