Rave reviews. We used this recipe for a catering event at work. We did not have walnuts so we used slivered almonds. We also used baked chicken breast instead of rotisserie chicken. Such a success! Everyone asked for the recipe.

Wonderful! Use whole grain flat bread and made rollups. Loved the sweet pop of the cranberries and the crunch of the walnuts (that I roasted for added crunch). I also added some diced red onion.

Cranberries and walnuts add a great sweetness and crunch to make a very flavorful chicken salad!

Loved this recipe! I used regular leftover chicken breast, not rotisserie. I also used regular Dijon since I didn't have the honey version. I used pecans instead of walnuts because that's what I already had. Lastly, after I made it, it didn't look saucy enough for me, so I added in an extra 1/2 portion of the mayo/mustard/pepper mixture (so I did a total of 1.5 times what is written above). LOVE IT. Will definitely make this again. YUM!

This has become a favorite for lunches in my home. The walnuts & cranberries add sweetness & crunch. My husband insists that he is the envy of co-workers when he brings this sandwich to work!
