This is a yummy salad. I had never had egg in chicken salad before so this recipe intrigued me. It was a very good combination. I liked that this was a basic, simple, and tasty salad. Thanks!

Had some tasty, left-over rotissary chicken, and all the other ingredients. Just used 3 large eggs -- and Fat-Free Miracle Whip. Did use the sweet relish, but I prefer dill, and will use that next time. We had some mixed olives from the olive bar, and plain pita crisps for lunch. We enjoyed this rare treat and will have again soon. Thanks for posting, ratherbeswimming

Very tasty chicken/egg salad. I used leftover grilled chicken and it worked out great. I served with cherry tomatoes and black seedless grapes. Great lunch! Thanks so much for posting!!
