The original recipe was printed in a Ginny's Catalog. But I changed it about and this is my version. It is very good. Quick because I use an already baked for me rotisserie chicken.

    I add more horseradish sometimes, or none at all. Depending on the children. Same goes for mayo. some people like a lot, others not.
