The Best Chicken Salad

Recipe by Beth A.

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. :)

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.
