I altered the amount of ingredients to my taste (more garlic, less lime) but I was really impressed with this! I will definitely be making it again. Great healthy substitute for chicken salad w mayo!

Loved this recipe!! Great recipe to prepare ahead of time and have ready for dinner. I added yellow raisiens and only used two stalks of celery. I also cooked the chicken in a pan (cut the chicken into small cubes first) and cooked it with the garlic and some cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and balsamic. Let the chicken cool and then mixed it into the rest of the ingriediants. I also added a tablespoon of honey mustard dressing to the mix. Yum yum!!
