This is my recipe for chicken salad. I've been making it for years, but didn't have a written recipe per se - just "eye balled" the ingredient amounts. I finally decided to measure and record everything while making it so I could post the recipe. I much prefer the chicken and eggs to be finely chopped and not turned into a paste in the food processor. On the other hand, I do prefer the onion and the celery to be liquified so you get the flavor of both but you don't bite into a piece of onion or celery. I listed 8 stalks of celery but after liquefying it in the food processor make sure you have a heaping cup - you may need to add a few more stalks depending on how big they are. As far as seasoning that really is a personal matter. I believe it is best using a Cajun type seasoning such as Tony Chacherie but I like that type of seasoning. If you don't I would use salt, black pepper, white pepper and be sure to use a little ground cayenne pepper for a little "zing". This recipe does make a lot and you can easily cut the recipe in half. I use frozen chicken breasts. I know there are a lot of recipes that call for boiling and de-boning the chicken, but honestly I don't think it's worth all of that trouble. Be sure to use good quality mayonnaise such as Hellman's - it really can make a big difference. I love to buy a loaf of fresh white bread and go to chicken salad sandwich heaven.
