This is one of my favorite, simple recipes. I usually make it according to the basic recipe, but I found it's also good with chopped sugar free sweet pickles and a little Emeril's Essence.
UPDATE: I just tried an idea that I'd read somewhere online. I put my cut up chicken, celery, some sweet and some dill pickle relish and mayonnaise in my food processor with the chopping blade in place. I processed everything until it had a consistency similar to tuna salad. It's very nice like that and a lot more moist than with chunks of chicken. It would also be nicer for using on sandwiches or in lettuce wraps, etc.
