This is by far the best chicken salad I have eaten/made. You can always add fruit like grapes or nuts to you to your liking. I get alot of compliments on this every time I make it! Enjoy!

  2. Take chicken out to cool and sprinkle on the garlic and onion powder,celery seed & basil-set in fridge.
  3. Boil the eggs for about 30 minutes or so-can boil in same water as chicken.

  5. Take chicken out of fridge and start shredding with fork and knife.
  6. Peel eggs and chop into chicken (I usually don't put in all the yolk part).

This is a wonderful simple quick recipe. The only complaint I have is that the lemon juice and celery seed somewhat over power everything else.....other than that it's wonderful.

Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! We did not add the eggs (accidently left them out) and looking back, I think it was even better without them. Will maker this again for sure.
