If you have leftover chicken that you want to do something else with, try this chicken salad with a kick! This is very easy and takes no time at all. I throw it on toasted bread with sliced tomatoes and fresh basil.

I am usually not a chicken salad fan but this was great. I like the spice. I made chicken salad wraps with avocado. The avocado is a great compliment to the spice. Read More

This was pretty good. At first it seemed kind of soggy with the amount of mayo and sour cream and the texture was not quite what I wanted it to be. So I added some chopped green bell peppers and some chopped onion to give it more of a crunch. That really added a LOT more flavor and it was perfect! Next time I will definitely reduce the mayo and sour cream to suit my family's preference. It tastes great after chilling in the fridge overnight and is awesome served with crackers. Read More

Very good! I love the southwest sauce at subway and this recipe is a lot like that. It s a nice change from the normal chicken salad. The only thing might add next time is a little fresh lime juice and cilantro. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was a great idea for jazzing up plain old chicken salad! For my own taste I added WAY less mayo and sour cream and used a shredded pepper cheese instead. You really could change this around a hundred ways and it would be great. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Instead of using mayo I made a honey mustard dressing. It made the salad sweet and spicy- delicious. Only thing I would do different next time is grill chicken breasts myself instead of buying pre-cooked chicken cubes. Read More

The dressing is very good! To cut the fat a little we only used a 1/2 cup mayo. My husband accidentally put in a whole (small) can of chipotle peppers in and it was HOT. Sour cream helped dilute. And viola you have a really good DIP not just a dressing! Read More

This was delicious! I dislike most chicken salads because they call for ingredients that I don't like (celery raw onions etc.) but this one fit the bill for my picky preferences. I changed the mayo/sour cream ratio to 1/2 cup each because I love sour cream and I used minced shallots instead of green onions for their milder onion flavor and since I didn't have garlic salt I used garlic paste (about two tablespoons for the whole recipe) and added regular table salt and pepper to taste. I also served it on wheat with thinly sliced cucumber and shredded lettuce... it provided a crunchy cool contrast to the spicy creamy chicken that complimented it perfectly. I shared it with my mom and her coworker who both loved it. I had to print out copies of the recipe for them! This would be great for a picnic or potluck lunch. I'll be making it again for sure!

I cooked up some chicken tenders with some salt and pepper and ended up with a little less than the 2.5 cups needed so I used 2 chipotle peppers instead of 3 and I'm glad I did. We like it spicy and that amount was just right for us. I didn't have green onion on hand so I used some regular white onion and it added a wonderful crunch! I eyeballed the mayo adding just enough to make the salad moist. I despise typical chicken salads but this new spin on chicken salad is amazing! I added about 1-2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro and 1/4-1/2 tsp of lime juice. Perfect! Thanks for the yummy recipe! Read More
