Recipe by gilmore_karen

I have been asked to make chicken salad for a reception for 200. I tried many recipes to make sure that I had the best. I think this one is at the top!

Mmm...good! I scaled the recipe to a third of the quantity, used a 12oz can of chicken breast (Kirkland brand), omitted the water chestnuts (husband doesn't care for them), and added red onion for zing. I used the full amount of soy sauce and lemon juice (we like saucy/pungent), but only a heaping teaspoon of curry. It made a wonderful sandwich on multigrain bran and leftovers were delicious on cottage cheese.
