Oh, how my mother and I adore a good chicken salad sandwich, but the mayonnaise can be bit heavy at times. This recipe is super-easy and quick and really tastes gourmet. No one will be able to guess how simple it is!

Great easy and quick recipe. Better for you than a mayo based chicken salad. We found that it was a bit creamy with the stated sour cream amount. So reducing that will make it less creamy and better in my opinion. Other than that, it was fantastic!

Found this to be a sensational recipe!! This will soothe your taste buds, especially if your'e not fond of mayo. Also trying some fresh fruit on the side is a bonus for those who want to eat healthy!!
