I used dried cherries and added a little more mayo and a bit of sugar. Just a little too tangy without it.
My fiance and I really enjoyed the flavors in this, but found that it a) took longer than the stated time to prep everything, and b) just didn't have the cohesion that we usually prefer in a chicken salad. We like to make sandwiches out of chicken salad, so I think that next time we'll probably add more dressing so it stays together better. All in all, we enjoyed this, but we have a similar recipe that is more to our tastes. Thanks for sharing!
I am going to come back and rate this after I make it again with fresh chicken. I have never had canned chicken before but I had some in the pantry and tried it, yuk! It tasted a whole like tuna, how strange. In any case, I know that had nothing to do with this recipe and I am certainly going to try this again, still sounds delish...just wanted to warn people not to try and take that short cut like I did! :-)
