"My husband said it was "okay", but after half a sandwich I had to throw it out. Just didn't like it. Asked my husband if he want's me to make it again later and he said he'll pass."

"Delicious chicken salad. Important to use well seasoned chicken--I used rotsserie chicken. Skipped the croissants, makes a great sandwich on toasted wheat bread w/ lettuce. Yum"

"This is really delicious! A bit of chopping but well worth the small effort. (oh, chopped the cherries too) I would LOVE it on the croissant, but actually put mine on a bed of lettuce and it was just lovely & tasty. Thank-you bunches Martha!"

"This is delicious. My husband and teenage son really like this. I have made it without the buttermilk when I didn't have any and it is still very good"
