Love this recipe! I have been looking for a great chicken salad recipe and have finally found one. I did add a few things a little dill, and pepper and took out the nuts but then I can't have them so added cut up celery for my crunch to it. This is great and a favorite now in our house hold. Thanks Tony for this great recipie!!

Great recipe Troy, thanks for sharing this. The chicken was bursting with flavor and was so very tender too. But,I think the hroseradish combined with the lemon and mayo was what made this recipe a winner!

This was good! I had chicken leftover over from chicken soup so I saved the breast meat for the salad. I didn't add the eggs, increased the horseradish (my favorite) and lemon. I used onion powder instead of fresh and added dill. I also just chopped the pecans so you get that little cruch (also increased those).

I am making this as we speak for mine and my husband's lunch this week. Since we can't wait til tomorrow to try it, we are actually going to have it for supper with a soup tonight. So, I will be back shortly with an update. Thanks for sharing! One hour later~ this was absolutely delicious!! Since I boiled the chicken before looking for a chicken salad recipe, I didn't cook it in the onions and celery. So I added chopped onion and celery to the salad itself. My husband wanted shredded cheddar cheese on his sandwich so that's how we ate it. It was very very good. I will be making this again and again, thanks again for sharing your recipe.

Excellent, tasty recipe that easy to make. I am a beginning cook and this recipe was easy and quick to prepare. I subbed horseradish for a dash of horseradish mustard, and left out the pecans. The lemon adds a nice touch. Thanks for this simple and great recipe.

Well, I must confess to a few changes with this recipe, most of necessity. We weren't scheduled to have this dish tonight, but I ended up having to make it sooner than anticpated, so it didn't get to set overnight in the fridge. Also, I sprinkled the breasts liberally with Penzey's Seasoned Salt and freshly ground black pepper, and then baked them. I cut up a couple of stalks of celery and 2 shallots, and added that to the bowl with the rest of the ingredients. I also left out the horseradish, because I just don't like the flavor it delivers. I can't wait to see how this tastes tomorrow after the flavors have had a chance to meld. Thanks for the recipe, and I'm certain to make this again! :)

We really enjoyed this chicken salad. I don't normally care for horseradish but it was very tasty in this salad. Thanks for posting.
