Very tasty. I used leftover roasted chicken for this. I made this as written and enjoyed the slight tang from the lemon juice, dijon and sugar. It is a good constancy for sandwiches or a bed of lettuce. Delicious. Thanx for sharing.

Definitely one step up from my old recipe. Only thing I tweaked was replacing onions with chives as I am not a huge fan of raw onion and omitted pecans cause I don't like nuts in my food. This one's a keeper!

I don't like sweet chicken salad either so this fit the bill perfectly. I followed the recipe as written, leaving out the sugar and it was just right for our tastes.
