My favorite chicken salad of all times. This is one you must try if you are a fan of chicken salads. Use white wine Worcestershire, if you can find it. Try serving this salad on a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich filling.

I was attracted to this recipe because it could be easily modified to fit my diet. However if this dish were unhealthy I would still be eating it - my family is addicted. I believe that fresh garlic should always be used instead of powder. Substitute 4 cloves minced fresh garlic for the garlic powder to make a huge flavor impact. This important modification makes the dish taste like you ordered it at a fine restaurant! I also didn't feel that the lemon pepper contributed positively so I removed it the next time I made it. Also I like celery in my chicken salad so I added it. I felt that the flavor and color contrasted nicely with the other ingredients. Thanks for this most excellent recipe! Read More

I absolutely adore this salad. It is a nice change of pace from the traditional chicken salad and everyone I've served it to just raves. I highly recommend it! It's got a very nice and zesty zing to it that sets it apart from the numerous bland chicken salads out there. Read More

I thought it was pretty good. I added celery which was good. To make it even more healthy I put in on a spinach tortilla along with shredded lettuce and rolled it into a wrap. Read More

I had to make a few changes just because of ingredients that I didn't have but mine was close and it was so good. Much better than the traditional mayo based chicken salad. Read More
