    Very good chicken salad and easily adaptable if you want to add in additional ingredients (halved grapes, toasted pecans, sunflower seeds...etc etc). Simple and tasty.  -  10 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Using ideas from previous reviewers, I added several dashes of poultry seasoning and garlic powder to the mayo mixture. Instead of 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries, I used 1/2 cup dried cranberries, 1/2 cup dried cherries, and about 1 cup of halved seedless green grapes. Omitted the green bell pepper since I don't care for it. Outstanding!! Huge hit at the covered-dish party I brought it to. Hubby loved it also!! I don't believe it serves 12 as listed, unless you make small sandwiches. I served it on lettuce leaves and it perhaps served 6 to 8.  -  15 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a wonderful chicken salad recipe. I was looking for something close to Arby's chicken salad and this was it. I omitted the green pepper and added chopped apples and sliced grapes. I highly recommend giving this recipe a shot. I'm glad I did!  -  29 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
