Tarragon Chicken Salad

"The Tarragon gives it a unique taste that we like better than the usual chicken salads that tend to be somewhat bland."

    I've always loved tarragon and chicken together. This salad is a perfect combination. I doubled the celery and onions, otherwise made it as written. Thanx for a great lunch! I'll make this again.

    This was awesome! I grow tarragon and it was "overgrown" so I had to cut it back. Used fresh tarragon to poach the chicken breasts and dried some in the microwave to add with the mayo, onion & celery. I did add some garlic salt to the water when poaching. Put it all in a wrap! YUM! Only thing is next time I will use a lettuce leaf to line the wrap and add some diced tomatoes! Thanks for this recipe!

    Oh this was wonderful. I had it on multi-grain bread with some lettuce for lunch today. I didn't have any celery and used spanish onion. The tarragon really kicks it up a notch. A small amount of garlic powder might be nice next time as well. Thank you for a great lunch solution.


I am happily married to my best friend and we just bought our first house! No kids but we have 2 little dogs that we think the world of. I was born in California and although I have been on the East Coast for most of my life I am still displaced! I love the beach and hate the cold! In our free time we love to go to the beach or the mountains and hike or intertube down the lazy Shenendoah River. It is so beautiful there! I have loved to cook all of my life and will read cookbooks like they are novels!
