This was yummy! Made some changes though. Used about 1 and 1/2 cup of chicken and cut the mayo down to 1/2 cup and then added 1/2 cup of sour cream. Added about 1 tsp of onion powder and 1tsp of crushed garlic. Deffintly will make again.

MY REVIEW

I am a huge fan of this recipe. I have cooked it several times and changed it slightly each time. I leave out the lemon juice because I am not a fan of lemon. I have also used Miracle Whip in place of regular mayo or Sour Cream. Both give it a slightly different taste but they are all delicious.
