    Great way to make chicken salad. I didn’t have horseradish on hand, but it was still really spicy. Delicious!

    Made this tonight for dinner! I used only about half the mayo, I pan-cooked the chicken instead of poaching it, and I added a little bit of diced jalapeno for heat. It’s delicious and easy and super filling – and it left my roommates pretty jealous of my dinner. Thanks for the post!

      I nvr used hot sauce. I’ve only used crushed red and black pepper. It’s delicious but I’m always looking for ways to improve my food so I will try this recipe. Can’t wait

      That’s how us Cajun’s here in Louisiana love it. Between bread. I’ve never made it wth horseradish or cider vinegar but I will definitely try it.

    This struck me just right this morning, and I’ll happily enjoy it for lunch all week. The flavors work great together, and I love having a chicken salad that is neither curried, nor fully traditional. Judging from the freshly-made taste, this will be fantastic tomorrow.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Where mustard is called for, is this prepared mustard (creole or yellow), or is this ground mustard seed?

    Prepared mustard. We used Dijon. ~Elise

    Instead of boiling your chicken, What I do is; season the chicken with herbs & spices, use less salt than put the chicken in pan on the lowest rack in oven an turn the broiler on, cook both sides till done. Also use chicken thighs adds great flavor. I cook chicken like this all the time its so quick & good. Deo Vindice

      I prefer boiling my chicken because I use the leftover broth for other dishes. But thanks for posting it.
