Simple old-fashioned chicken salad which is perfect for sandwiches or stuffing tomatoes. Although the recipe calls for boiling uncooked chicken leftover chicken would also work fine and give wonderful flavor to the chicken salad. Recipe source: local newspaper

Very good and tasty, good job Ellie. I didnt have any fresh parsley or dill seed, so I ommited the parsley and used dill weed, 1/2 of what was suggested for the dill seed. Still was very good, I plan on making it this way from this day fourth. I chopped some romaine lettuce and put it in a bowl, mixed it up with this recipe and shook a few shakes of malt vinergar over the top, delicious!! Thanks

Very good basic recipe, even though I had to make some minor changes based on what I had on hand. I used cooked leftover chicken, so that eliminated steps 1-3. I had to use dried parsley (less of course) because I had no fresh. Dried dill instead of seeds, and my celery was on it's last legs, so I salvaged what I could, chopped it and a little onion in the food processor, and then added celery salt to the final product. This may look like a lot of changes, but it really isn't, hence the 5 stars. Yummy

Made this for my mother's birthday luncheon today and it was a hit. I did make some changes. I only used 1 TBL lemon juice, omitted the dill seed and used a TBL of prepared pesto sauce instead of parsley. Will make again!
