"Excellent chicken salad. I have made it several times. Tip: Rotisserie chicken gives the salad a lot more flavor. Also, 1/2 C. mayo is not enough. 3/4 C to 1C or the salad is rather dry. If using rotisserie chicken you may want reduce the salt."

"I make chicken salad all the time for a quick lunch. This is a great recipe that I try many variations to. I do not add the raisins but do add sugar, ground mustard and chives for more flavor. The great thing about this recipe is you can add things to it and it just gets better and better."

"I left out the raisins feeling the grapes were enough for our taste. Otherwise, a great, easy to prepare salad."

"I made this chicken salad for lunch today and thought it was excellent. It was very easy to prepare. I did toast the pecans as I feel it brings out their flavor. My husband loved it as did I. We will definitely have this chicken salad again and I highly recommend it."

"Lacking something. Lacking a little flavor. Maybe another spice. Sugar? More salt? Some other spice?"

"I left out the raisins but didn't need to add anything else - served on croissants - husband said he could eat this once a week and wanted to know if I got the recipe from my grandmother!"
