This is a great sandwich filling that they make at the diner in the hospital where I work, but I fancied it up a bit with some green onions and pecans. A great way to use up leftover chicken. Delicious!

Fruity and Fabulous! This is a great chicken salad and a great way to use up some leftover grilled chicken that I hand on hand. I LOVE dried cranberries so this chicken salad was right up my alley. I chopped up the chicken and opted to used celery in place of the green onions. I also chopped up a Red Delicious apple vs. shredding it. I mixed the dressing in a separate bowl before folding it into the chicken and other ingredients. For the dressing I used Hellman's light mayo and cut it with a bit of reduced fat sour cream I also used curry powder vs. dill. I'm a huge fan of dill but for this salad I felt the curry powder just paired better. I let this set in the fridge for a few hours after sneaking a few bits and WOW what a wonderful combination of flavors! This was so good on whole grain bread. Thanks Rachel for a wonderful recipe!

FANTASTIC! What a terrific way to use left over chicken. I didn't measure a thing because I didn't feel it was necessary. My changes were to skip the green onion used red apple for green apple and almond slices for pecans. That's because it was what I had on hand. I love the way the dried cranberries add a sweetness and the nuts add the crunch. Such a FANTASTIC easy recipe. Thank you for sharing Rachel! You made my day!! Read More

I gave this recipe to one of in-house corporate cafe employees. She made 20 sandwiches ahead of time and they all went in less than an hour! By the time I got there they were gone. She has requests from all over the building to put that on the menu again! Excellent recipe! Read More

Excellent! This is my favorite chicken salad recipe. Easy to put together fresh and flavorful. The dill adds the perfect touch. Rotisserie chicken works well in this recipe too and is a great timesaver. I make this a lot for light suppers during the summer. Thanks Rachel! Read More

Very good! I made this for a picnic lunch we had at a winery - goes well with a nice cool crisp white wine. The pecans and dried cranberries add interesting flavors. I made it the night before and it was definitely better after the flavors blended together. Delicious! Read More
