Beyond the Grave Chicken Salad

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by spoilme

Adapted from a recipe in "Itty Bitty Lies" by Mary Kay Andrews. This version is a little creamier as it has more mayo and I added cream cheese.

This makes way more than the 2 of us could handle, so I cut the recipe in half & went on from there! Then when it came time for the 'final ingredients' I mixed those in a little at a time & actually used just a little more than half of that, because I felt the salad was creamy enough! This is a very satisfying chicken salad & one worth being made again & again in my kitchen! Thanks for sharing it!
