Well, not quite an emergency but I absolutely need a good recipe for the filling in a chicken salad sandwich!  It's one of my favourite foods and I just can't seem to get it right.  Cafeterias always have the super most awesomest ones but everytime I try to make one it tastes like yuck.  I really want it to taste like the ones in cafeterias (or restaurants) - can you tell me how?  I will love you forever  Grin.

I like to put apples nuts and celery in there for crunch along with the chicken and mayo and pepper (sometimes I use lemon pepper)

I am not sure if this will help but cafeteria chicken salad is usually made with Turkey.

I usually mix curry powder in with the mayo and it makes an UBER tasty chicky salad.

there's a really good recipe in martha stewart's hors d'oeuvres book.  you poach the chicken breasts in chicken stock (keeps them moist & yummy)  and then shred it with some FRESH tarragon (do not use that old powdered crap), good mayo (hellman's or best foods..depending on your coast), sea salt & pepper.  it's all about using good ingredients.
her recipe makes finger sandwiches & she rolls the outside, crust-less parto of the sandwiches in slivered almonds.
yum!

Sometimes I make mine with chicken, mayo, shredded cheddar cheese, and a little bit of ranch dressing mix.  It adds a little zing and takes the mayo-ey taste out.

I usually make mine with chicken (of course), mayo, grapes, a teeny bit of celery, and chopped walnuts. If I'm feeling extra fancy, I'll add curry powder or a squirt of a good, grainy mustard.

ilovepaper, your recipe with cashews and dried cranberries sounds fantastic! I'm definitely going to have to try that sometime. Like, as in dinner. Tonight.  Cheesy

I love craftster so much that I am going to reveal my super secret chicken and tuna salad ingredient........drum roll please.......[glow=red,2,300]MINCED FRESH PARSLEY!![/glow]!!!  Tah dah! 

I know it doesn't sound like much but it really packs a great flavor punch...........but it must be fresh.  I also mix dijon mustard into the mayo before hand.

booglass, you're funny! and you're right, too. it's amazing how a little bit of fresh herbs can go a long way toward giving recipes have that special extra kick. that's why i've been stocking up on fresh herbs at my local farmers market and sticking 'em in the freezer so i can enjoy 'em all year round. you should see all the basil i've got - yowzers!
