This is wonderful on a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich or wrap!  Water chestnuts add a delicious crunch!  I always add a little greek yogurt not only to lighten it up, but it just adds a delicious tangy flavor!

The great thing about chicken salad is that it can easily be tailored to what you have on hand!

Here are few other delicious combinations:

  1. Sliced Grapes, 1/4 cup raisins & 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  2. Dill, chopped pickles & a slice of cheddar cheese
  3. 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder, diced ham & shredded swiss cheese
  4. Cranberries, diced celery and 1/2 cup shredded apple (great on spinach!)
