"I'm a huge fan of chicken salad and have tried so many different variations over the years, but this one is by far my favorite. Simple, refreshing flavors and great texture make it wonderful on a sandwich or just served over a bed of lettuce!"

I left out the pecans, celery and sugar, but this was still a really good chicken salad. I also substituted lemon pepper for lemon juice and cut the mayo (miracle whip) by a 1/3. I'll be using...

This recipe is very good but I will probably cut the ground pepper in half next time. It really overpowered the sandwich. Otherwise, it was delicious and I will definitely make again!
