THE BEST ROASTED CHICKEN SALAD

OVEN ROASTED GIVES IT FLAVOR

For me, a good chicken salad has to have a nice balance of being able to taste the moist roasted chicken along with the creaminess and taste of mayonnaise. This recipe strikes a good balance of both and the other add-in ingredients, like the celery and onion are all optional to suite your tastes.The Best Roasted Chicken Salad recipe from The Country Cook
