Tara's Sweet and Chunky Chicken Salad

ABBIE 'N LILLI'S MOM

"A sweet, but healthy chicken salad. The sweet secret is dried cranberries. Awesome on homemade bread or on crackers. I spread cream cheese on the bread or crackers, and top with chicken salad."

My husband and I were not a big fan of this recipe. It lacked any flavor other than the occasional cranberry. Wouldn't make it again.
