    Chicken salad is something I’m picky about too – and for me it MUST be on a croissant! This looks like a winner in my book!

    I really dislike mayonnaise, too! I’m always grossed out at sandwich shops when they ask if I want mayo on my chicken salad or egg salad sandwich…isn’t it already *made* with mayo?! This sandwich looks super tasty – I never would have thought of using water chestnuts!

    Oh man totally forgot to write about the extra mayo in the post. I agree why would you want more when it’s already added in the mix. The worst part is when you can see it oozing on the bread.

    I’m not a huge fan of mayo, but I do love a good chicken salad! I can’t stand mushrooms. The texture really bothers me. I’m not a picky eater at all, but I won’t touch any dish that has mushrooms in it.

    That’s funny that you don’t like mayo but can eat it in this! Love that! Pinned 🙂

    Love a good chicken salad, especially one that doesn’t include nuts!

    Meagan this is totally calling my name! I too love chicken salad and will sheepishly admit I never make it myself! So silly. You’ve motivated me to get over that with this recipe. I love the photos! The light is so inviting.

    Ever tried using Greek yogurt instead of Mayo?

    I just made this today. I grabbed my mayo from the fridge and opened it only to find that it was ROTTEN! Gross. We don’t use it hardly EVER. So I made from mayo from scratch. Very yummy. This is delicious. I later added some curry powder to it and it was super yummy that way too. I will definitely make this again.

    I love a good chicken salad, and I love the idea of adding water chestnuts. These look wonderful!

    This sounds like a recipe my husband would love. He is a big fan of chicken salad…me not so much. I will have to try this out for him!

    Megan this sounds awesome but there is a way around the mayonnaise and that theory is Campbell’s condensed cream of chicken soup. Try it . It’s awesome!
