    This is a quick, easy lunch recipe to make with leftover chicken (breast and legs). I skipped the onions and added some crunchiness with about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. I prefer to add a little bit of "acidity", using some chopped tomatoes. This made a good combination. I will pack lunches with this recipe.

    I made these for a special luncheon. Everyone thought they were great. I used the canned chunk chicken. It worked great. I will make these again.

    When I made this I didn't have any cooked chicken or celery, so I used a 13 oz can of chicken (shredded) and added 1 TB of sunflower kernels, 1 TB of coconut and some chopped pecans.

    The onion flavor was a little strong, but everyone really liked the sandwich. It made a nice lettuce wrap sandwich also.

    This was quick and easy to put together for an after church lunch.

    I love the flavor of this chicken salad, and I’m not usually a fan of cranberries. I frequently make this to use up leftover chicken. I just use whatever off-brand of light mayo I have. And, most of the time, I omit the celery and replace it with more onion.
