Adapted from a recipe on This is the best chicken salad I've come across yet! The seasonings are right on, and I love the extra crunch the water chestnuts add. I make this regularly during the summer months. Hope you all enjoy this, as well. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, salt, poultry seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and lemon juice.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, green onions, water chestnuts, and swiss cheese. Add the mayonnaise mixture, and stir to coat. Chill until serving.

Very tasty! I didn't want my usual bland chicken salad, so I thought I'd try this recipe. I liked the seasoning. I bet water chestnuts would be good, but I didn't have any. I added chopped hard boiled egg. I liked the lemon in it too. Thank you.

Made this for lunch this weekend. I used regular onion (didn't have green), used mozzarella cheese and added an apple. It was great. Thanks for posting.

This was soooo tasty! The seasonings were right on! I did omit the water chesnuts because I really don't care for them, and I used shredded cheddar cheese. I'm sure this would be great with just about any cheese you have. Wonderful recipe, Thanks for posting! Made for PAC 2009.
