Best Chicken Salad EVER!! (And I hate chicken salad!)
"the reviews called my attention to this one, we were in need of a fast chick-salad for unexpected guests. i had some back-yard smoked chicken in the fridge from the day before. the only thing i changed was reducing the mayo a bit. as the prior reviewers indicated, this had a stellar flavor.
this is now on a pesonal go-to list everytime we have leftover chicken! thanks tdscollon"

rnks06 1 year agoI loved this chicken salad. I substituted cranberries for the grapes. It has just a hint of sweet from the honey. I will definitely make this again.
