I omitted the seasoned salt because I thought it would make it too salty. Right after I made it I tasted it but it was bland. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE the trick is it needs to sit overnight. The next day it was delicious! We are at the river or lake often & you can only have cold cuts for so many days in a row. We ate this for two days on the trip and we were sad when it was gone. I made it into sandwiches and served it on raisin bread and we enjoyed it as a dip too. This is a keeper for sure!
I normally don't like chicken salad and I really think we might make this again :-) Even my husband liked it - even without the pepper. We used light Miracle Whip and fat free plain yogurt, two cubed chicken breasts from a left over rotisserie chicken and ripe red pear (since we did not have any grapes) and we did not have any nuts so we left them out. I can see this being very good in a whole wheat pita instead of regular sandwich bread like we did tonight. Will be using this one again.
My husband and I both enjoyed this. I don't care for celery so I left it out and used extra apple in its place. Next time I would use less cranberries and more chicken. The canned chicken was easy but roasted or boiled fresh chicken might be tastier. I really liked how light this salad was and was not weighed down by a lot of mayonnaise.
Except for subbing walnuts for pecans and using cold rotisserie chicken I followed the recipe to a tee. Started chopping at 10:30 stuck it in the fridge at 11 served it to the church ladies at noon. It was widely agreed among the group that this is in fact the best chicken salad sandwich ever. I wouldn't add a thing except plenty of pita pockets. Can't wait for leftovers tomorrow!
This chicken salad was awesome. The only change I made was to use leftover chicken. And as another reviewer said it is better left to set overnight. I loved it stuffed in a pita and if I cut the ingredients real small it is good with Ritz crackers. MY brother raves about and he would eat the whole bowl if I let him. Do not change anything with it it is good as is.
I like the creaminess but it has a lot of ingredients I'm not used to in a chicken salad. But I wanted to try something new. It's not bad. It's missing something. I'm going to add boiled eggs an see... Thanks for the recipe.
