Rich Chicken Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Laura in Illinois

I used to work for the department store Neiman Marcus and they serve a popular chicken salad in their restaurant, the Zodiac Room. Employees ask for recipes occasionally and the chef posted this one in break room. This is such a great lunch served over crisp lettuce and some grape tomatoes!

The cream makes this excellent. I add some garlic, pepper and onions, substitute grapes for the celery and used walnuts instead of almonds and it turns out great!
