This is a very good chicken salad recipe. Don't hesitate to use it. Next time I will only put 1 cup of Mayonnaise. I mixed in about 3/4 cup of the red onion because my children don't like onions and I added a handful (approximately 1/2 cup) of Dry Roasted Pine Nuts. I'll bet cashews would be good in it if you don't have the pine nuts. My kids loved it and didn't say anything about the onions. Wow...what an accomplishment!


I really enjoyed this one. Very subtle flavor that would be liked by most. Used canned chicken from Sam's Club.


I rate recipes based on how they work when done by the book. This one needed substantial tweaking. Halve the mayo and mix. Add more mayo as needed. Hint: More finely-chopped chicken needs more mayo. Reduce the chopped parsley to 1/2 cup. I had to use dried tarragon which I increased to 1 tbsp. Dice the celery so it's less distracting. Consider swapping halved red grapes for the raisins. Not including salt and pepper is a big oversight. Use a pinch of each. Mix well and refrigerate at least several hours or overnight for the flavors to blend.
