As written, this is way too dry. I used 1/2 c. mayonnaise instead of 1/4 c., and I really think I could have added more. I would have liked to try the tarragon but I didn't have any.

This was good but I didn't add the optional tarragon. I had to add a bit more mayo for our taste. We also found this a bit salty. I would half the seasoning salt next time. We all enjoyed this for lunch.

I made this using some deli bought chicken and some chicken left over from Chicken Paprika which gave it a hint of garlic (would recommend using a garlic mayonnaise if you were wanting this taste), I served some wrapped in flat mountain bread with lettuce, tomatoe and cucumber to the DS and DM and I had mine mixed in with penne pasta and green salad on the side.
