    Love this recipe, to reduce the fat I use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and the Sir Kensingtons's Mayo. So delicious, great for anything you want it to be: snack, lunch, sandwich spread, just wonderful.

    I changed the chicken with leftover turkey from my Thanksgiving meal and it was wonderful.

    Creamy with a great taste. I saw the post where Lynnie319 said the celery was substituted for pecans. I will definitely try it with the pecans next time. This would be a great recipe to make finger sandwiches for gatherings. Or as a snack.

    Great for snacking. It would also work well as a sandwich spread. I also tried it with the pecans and loved the taste!

    When I submitted this recipe the ingredients included 1/2 c. chopped pecans, not celery. The pecans are what make it Texan! TOH editors substituted the celery.

    This one gets raves whenever I serve it. I have used canned chicken successfully, as well as 2 heaping tablespoons of green onions for the onion. The green onions add nice color. I also use a natural seasoned salt called Herbamare[3/4 tsp.] to kick up the flavor a bit.

    Thumbs up on this one! Super easy to make if you have a food processor. I used it as a sandwich filling as a change from the usual chicken salad sandwich.
