Any good chicken salad recipes?

I would like a good chicken salad recipe for sandwiches. I like sweet and salty. I really like the chicken salad from Michael’s deli, if this is a chain. I am not really looking for a very difficult recipe or one with lots of ingredients.

    My chicken salad is sooooooooooo easy with minimal ingredients :

    2 cups ground chicken
    1/2 c chopped / minced onion (preferably the sweet onion)
    1 T. crushed garlic
    1 t. fresh ground horseradish (from your garden preferably)
    1/2 to 3/4 c. mayo (depending upon your creamy preference)
    dash salt / pepper
    Combine well and spread on choice of bread.

    Another way to jazz it up alittle is to add chopped olives, whether green or black.. .

    Try adding capers…

    I get asked for my chicken salad recipe all the time! : )

    Put the following in the food processor: cooked chicken (no skin), salt, pepper, relish (since you like sweet), a tiny bit of onion, a tbs. or so of celery, and a good spoonful of mayo. Pulse until well mixed.

    It’s about as easy as you can get, and pretty good! Many delis make their chicken salad in a food processor.

    This salad can be served as a sandwich or as a salad. I’ve used it to stuff cucumbers with as well. It is always a crowd pleaser and incredibly easy to make.
