Cold Chicken Salad

I love this recipe - it is an old favorite of the family. My grandmother made this for me many times and now that she is gone, I have taken over making it for the family. Everyone who tries it, loves it and wants it over and over. I get many requests to make it.

    Great recipe and sooo easy! I used a 5 lb fryer chicken and just tossed it in a slow cooker with 1/3 cup of water for 8 hours rather than more expensive chicken breasts. The chicken fell off the bone after that and was the perfect amount for the recipe. I increased the diced celery to 1 1/2 cups just out of personal preference, and I probably used about two cups of mayo (by accident, I'll probably not use as much the next time I make it). All I had to add was a little more pepper and wow. Such an easy recipe and so versatile - I think next time I'll add chopped walnuts too! Def going in my "keeper" folder. Thanks for sharing!

    Pretty good recipe. Thanks for sharing. I marinated the chicken in mesquite to give it a little extra zest.

    Outstanding recipe. I served this on the small King's buttery rolls as mini sliders and they were a huge hit. I seasoned the chicken well with salt, pepper, onion powder and a tiny bit of paprika and browned then in a skillet and then cooled and diced. This is a keeper, awesome in it's simiplicity.

    Oh gosh, great chicken salad! I couldnt stop tasting while I was mixing! Used the celery leaves too when chopping and didnt have a lemon so used about 1/4 cup of bottled lemon juice. A fresh lovely flavored chicken salad that I will make again. Thank you so much for posting this recipe Lynne Breedlove!
