How to make it

  • Combine first chicken, bacon, water chestnuts and celery and in a large bowl; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients to make the dressing. Chill for 20 minutes.
  • Combine dressing with chicken mixture, using as much or as little as necessary to moisten as desired.
  • You may add a little more mayonnaise if you like a creamier salad. Chill and stir again before serving.
  • Serve on your favorite bread, with avocado.
  • Or on lettuce leaves, with green grapes.

    I have to say thank you, thank you and thank you. I once had a chicken salad that had bacon in it and I never could find one that was close to it. This is it I think. Yay!

    It is super yummy and the only way to have chicken salad in my opinin. :D

    Bet this would be good on toasted bread with a spread of cream cheese added to one side of the bread. But it looks great as you have submitted. I have to try this out on my son then next time I pack his lunch for work.

    I like the idea of crumbling pieces of bacon throughout the salad!

    There's always so many recipes for chicken salad,but this one really sounds so good & different. I wonder if turkey bacon would work?
