What a nice, refreshing take on chicken salad! The fresh basil really kicks it up a notch. I was short on time and got a rotisserie chicken which made it even easier. I am like Paula, I used full sour cream and mayo. LOL I toasted some almonds and added about 1 teaspoon more lemon juice and some zest. Next time, I may try a bit of dijon mustard and some finely chopped red onions as well. Thanks for posting, COMOCOOK.
