Great job!!! I think this chicken salad is delicious! It tastes very similar to chick-fil-a's and much cheaper, However, I noticed one thing missing. Chick-fil-a's salad has cut up pieces of hard-boiled eggs. I don't think it would change the taste much, but it is definitely good with it! That's how I made it last time. I topped the salad with tomato slices and romaine lettuce on my sandwiches. I am making it again for lunch tomorrow. Yummy :)

I have never cared for chicken salad with fruit in it (i.e. apples and grapes) and fell in love with the Chick-fil-a chicken salad. This recipe matches it so well I was impressed. In fact, it may be even better. Seems like the few times since I started making this that I have bought a sandwich from Chick-fil-a, it was not as good as I remembered. Could be that I can now use my favorite bread. I also add onion powder to match the garlic powder amount. Just ate some and I wanted all to know, this is the ultimate chicken salad.

This recipe went like a flash at work! I added some toasted pecans and some red grapes, but otherwise I prepared it as is. What a great recipe! Thanx for sharing altfgirl!

We all loved these chicken salad sandwiches! I've never had the Chick-Fil-A version, but I can verify that this one is excellent! I loved the relish addition. I used Vegenaise instead of regular mayo and it worked perfectly. A 1/2 cup of mayo was plenty. In fact, I'd recommend starting off a bit shy of a 1/2 cup and go from there because 1/2 cup was almost too much for our tastes. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is a great chicken salad recipe. I made this to take on our road trip for sandwiches and we loved them. This recipe tastes just like my moms salad. I will use this from now on. Thank you for sharing with us.

I have ALWAYS been a HUGE fan of the Chik-Fil-A Chicken Salad. I moved to Detroit for my career and am sad there is no Chick-Fil-A here. I had no idea just how ridiculously simple it was this salad would be to make! I used left over Tuscan chicken from Boston Market, but I suppose it doesn't matter what chicken you use, so long as it's not dry or tasteless. This tasted just like, if not better than, the real deal. I am SO impressed it's almost embarrassing. I didn't measure anything, just eyeballed it. It came out perfectly. Oh, and I used Duke's Mayonnaise, of course. Great job, atfitgirl!

An alteration for the salt is to add celery salt instead. I know first hand that celery salt is an ingredient that makes the chick fil a chicken salad stand out :)

I never ate chick-fil-a chicken salad but we loved this. I had leftover chicken from Best Baked Slow Cooker Chicken. I didn't add the optional sugar nor did I add the celery as I didn't have any. I used 1/2 cup of mayo which was perfect for me but hubby thought it needed more so he added a bit more to his sandwich. This is such a simple recipe but we loved it. Will be using as my chicken salad recipe from now on!

I have never eaten at Ckick-fil-A I had some left over cooked roasted chicken and wanted to try to make chicken salad. I did add a few cut up green grapes to give it a little bit of a sweet crunch. It was very yummy and hit the spot. Thank's for sharing.
