I've been trying different recipes for Chicken Salad and this one is my current favorite. It has a wonderful flavor and I'll be making this often. I made it as written save for using 1 tsp of dried dill instead of 1 Tbl of fresh dill. For those who may not know, the rule of thumb is use 1/3 the amount of the fresh herb if using dried. The dried herb is more concentrated so less is needed. Thanks for providing this recipe, Alan, it's delicious.

I forgot the dill, left out the celery so I wouldn't be the only one eating it, and this was still the best chicken salad ever! I love the dressing for this, and I'm already trying to think of things to put it on. I did make some elbow macaroni and make this into a noodle salad. I put some of the extra dressing on some fried green tomatoes and it was heavenly. I love the touch of dijon in this, and I might just start keeping this dressing in the fridge to have with veggies. Thanks for sharing!

The sauce alone is wonderful, but the dill provides a nice counter and the celery a great texture! Thanks for the great recipe. I will be using it again!!UPDATE: I've made this several times and have even made the sauce to use on a red potato salad and a shrimp salad (that I served over cold penne). I love it and always get rave reviews!!! Thank you again!!

I love chicken salad of any kind, unsweet or sweet, I love it. And this summer is so extremely hot I wanted something that sounded cooler than a hot meal. This chicken salad has been in my want to try file for a couple of years...... finally made it and it is very, very good. No dill, so not sure how that would change it. I do wish I had made it early enough to chill it because I think it should be served chilled. I served as sandwiches.

YAM-YAM...soooo good! I have made tons of chicken salad over the years but this one tops them all!Thank you Alan for letting us enjoy it also.I made it just as the recipe reads.I cooked the chicken in chicken broth with some white wine and let it sit overnight in the icebox then made the chicken salad the next day.Served it over watercress and crusty country bread,oh so-so good!

Can't wait to give this a try. I've been to Junior's many, many times but that was years ago. As a student at Erasmus Hall on Flatbush Ave., Junior's was our hangout. You're right about their cheesecake - the greatest. Thanks for the recipe.
