    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    A throw together salad when I didn't know what to do with 3 cooked bone-in tarragon, thyme chicken breasts -- I had no celery or green onion, so I improvised using celery seed and onion powder. Would probably taste even better with chopped celery and some green onion! :) If you dislike mayo, try it with half sour cream and half mayo -- you might like it!

      I didn't have thyme to make a big dinner, but I tarragon'd through the day enough that I gingerly pecaned the craisins, and lookie what I made! This joyous, delicious, and very satisfying chicken salad. This was really the pinnacle of a very excellent chicken salad; one, that would be perfect served at a "Mamma Day" brunch celebration. I served mine with some fresh homemade rye bread, and I honestly didn't want to share this with DH, but - if I must, I must. Made for *Farm Cooking* Photo Forum May 2010
