  2. Combine the chicken, red onion, cucumber, garlic, and ranch dressing in a large bowl. Season with pepper to taste.

I'm the author of this recipe and wanted to make a couple notes.... For the chicken, I do not simply boil the chicken as the recipe states. You need to add something to help flavor the chicken to the water...salt, pepper,celery,onion etc. A good recipe to try/look at for guidance is AR's for Boiled Chicken...just add salt. The amount of pepper in the recipe should not be a pinch but it should be, fresh ground pepper, to taste. Some people like a lot (my dad) and others (my husband) not so much,lol I am also picky about the brand of Ranch Dressing I use as well, personally not all dressing's taste the same..we like Hidden Valley. It's also good with a bit of shredded cheese mixed in too;) Enjoy!



This was very good and quick to make. I wanted chicken salad for lunch but didn't have any celery to provide the crunch. The ranch dressing gives it a zing that's missing in regular chicken salad. I will definitely make it again!



Good recipe. Although, like most people, I changed a few things. Instead of boiling the chicken, I roasted it in the oven. I added some crumbled bacon and used roasted garlic instead of fresh garlic. Also, I cut down the ranch a bit and added some honey mustard. I would make this again.
