Debbie's notes for this recipe:
My Uncle Wiley lives in Winter Haven Florida. We try to visit him a couple of times a year. I love to cook, so I cook while I am there, unless we are going to some of the great restaurants in the area. But he makes the best Chicken Salad I have ever eaten. I brought this recipe home with me. My family and friends absolutely love it, so I thought that I would share it with you.

Yum! The addition of sour cream adds a delicious tang that we can't get enough of! Delightful.


Poach chicken (boneless skinless) breast. This takes the longest amount of time, I often cook my chicken the day before and store it in a Ziplock bag in the fridge. When you are ready to make the salad you dice the chicken
In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients; salt and pepper to taste. You may need a little more mayonnaise.
I serve it with crackers, or it makes a great sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes.
