Made this for my son's summer party before leaving for a year in Spain. I lost count of the number of teen boys and girls who came to ask for the recipe! And took the time to write it down, just in case it did not make it to their emails. Like some others, I up the curry loading as I am also a big fan of the heat. Fabulous regardless of any changes made.

AMAZING/ Crowd Pleaser!!!

I've made this recipe for several potlucks and it's been a huge hit every time! I've tried a few variations based on what I've already had. A great substitute for celery and green onion is geeen pepper and red onion. I've also used slivered almonds instead of pecans. I absolutely love curry so I double the amount... SO GOOD!!! Great with Hawaiian Rolls, Wheat Thins, Triscuits...

So Delicious!

I've tried different chicken salad recipes and this one is by far the best. The flavoring is perfect and it has the right amount of crunch. It's in my regular rotation of bring-to-work lunch recipes.
