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
