I had tons of chicken leftover from the weekend. I made this and served it with curried brocolli soup and crusty bread. It was much better then the original roast chicken and was really quick and easy to prepare.
This is sheer genius! I would never in a thousand years have thought of combining these ingredients. I substituted roast turkey for chicken and added some chopped parsley. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. I used my food processor to shred the turkey. The crunch of the water chestnuts is very pleasant. I will make salads like this again. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
MMMM MMMM Good!
I LOVED this! I did NOT grow up on chicken salad, and am always suspect of the fruits and nuts in the typical recipe. The pickles won me over. I used ThatBobbieGirl's #33104 for the chicken. And I'm going to use water chestnuts more often! They added a great texture. So far, I've eaten this on white bread, on toast, mixed in with lettuce, and by the forkfull straight from the container. I did add some sliced almonds. And it could use something - I'm going to try fresh thyme, tarragon, and/or marjoram. I will make this every week during the summer! Thanks, Ingy.
