Whole Foods bugged me when they seriously raised the price of this already pricey chicken salad...so I've been really working on the recipe for awhile...determined to not have to make a special trip for the best chicken salad ever! I think I'm pretty close, sub out pecans for walnuts and you'll nail it right on the head. One tip on making the chicken for chicken salad. I don't like boiled chicken-too blah. I like to cook a whole chicken in the romertoff and slough off the liquid for my chicken stock for the week, then pull off all the meat. I'll use 1/2 the meat for the chicken salad and the other 1/2 for my fabulous tortilla soup.The chicken is much tastier, cheaper, plus you have three meals in one.
