With apples and dried cranberries for color and tang, this dressed-up chicken salad is wonderful on bread triangles or served on a lettuce leaf.

Oh my! This is great chicken salad! I used left-over seasoned chicken in it, trying not to throw it out or waste it. Boy, am I glad I did! I have made this before and subbed lemon juice for the lime and a little regular onion for the green onion with no harm done at all. I always use Hellman's Light Mayo. One time I tried to lighten it up even more by using 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 1/4 cup light mayo. Still delicious! Read More

I was not exactly sure how they would turn out...but I was pleasantly surprised! Several people were commenting how delicious the chicken sandwiches were. It was great since we had over 20 people over for mother's day brunch. :) Read More

Made this for Recipe Group. It is wonderful! I love chicken salad with curry in it, and this is my new favorite. I didn't have lime the first time I made it, so I used lemon juice. I didn't notice any difference in taste when I used lime. The second time I sprinkled in a little more curry and I peeled the apple (both just my preference). This recipe is perfect as written! Thank you pattycakes! Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 01 June 2013 A delicious filling summer sandwich. Family really enjoyed this chicken salad. I did omit the pecans so that my son would eat it. I served it on a multi-grain French bread and used fresh spinach leaves rather than lettuce as it is what I had on hand. I liked the added flavor that the fresh lime juice gave to the mayonnaise. I served this with a pasta salad and fresh fruit and it was so nice out today we ate outside on the patio. Read More

This was the recipe group selection for the week. I did use some rotisserie chicken so I didn't have to cook the chicken, which made this a breeze to whip up on a hot humid night. We served on some nice fresh bakery onion rolls since just the hubs and I. What a delicious salad, just the perfect combination of tangy fruit, creamy dressing and fresh crunchy veggies and nuts. So darn good you don't even need any bread. Read More

Thank you Pattycakes for your delicious recipe. I prepared the chicken salad and allowed it to chill for a couple of hours before serving. The only change I made was to serve on King's Hawaiian Mini Sub Rolls. This is a definite keeper as everyone really enjoyed. Recipe Group we hit it out of the ballpark again with this great recipe selection. Read More

Recipe Group Selection for June 1 2013 - I thinly sliced a crusty baguette for my sweet little tea sandwiches. They were appealing and appetizing and everyone enjoyed them. But I have to admit I loved this chicken salad so much afterwards I grabbed a sub roll and filled it up. Bring it on - this was delicious! Read More
