Reviews for Cranberry-Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwiches
"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!"
"Very delicious! We had these on lettuce wraps and really enjoyed them."
