"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 thought this was a fresh, basic chicken salad. Really good! I didn't have any relish so I was worried about that. But I think that's why it had a simple flavor and I kinda liked that for a change. Also, I used onion powder in place of the onion and did half sour cream and mayo for that part. I really enjoyed the pecans and the texture that brought. Great recipe!

Thank you for not having fruit in the recipe. When are people going to realize that in a real chicken, grapes have no place.
