At least a triple batch of my chicken salad is needed to satisfy hungry relatives at our summer family reunion. It's the most requested recipe I make. This salad is so versatile, it can be scooped onto a bed of lettuce or stuffed into a pita.

"I entered this recipe in a contest that our local newspaper holds each year, and it won first place in the salad division," reports Judy Kisch-Keuten of Beatrice, Nebraska. Toasted almonds and a celery add crunch to the flavorful sandwich filling that's tasty served on English muffins.
I ordered an entrée similar to this at the local museum café and liked it so much I decided to make something similar. At the museum it was served as a filling for a sandwich made with lettuce, tomato and thinly sliced red onion. I tend to serve it as a salad during the summer. It’s really good on a hot day.
The complex flavors of the chutney perfectly complement the cream cheese in this unique sandwich. It's a great way to use leftover chicken, and it's pretty enough for a special occasion like a shower.—Jane Ingraham, San Marcos, California
