MY REVIEW

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

I make a very similar recipe without the buttermilk and it is wonderful. I also use the canned chicken which I flake.
