About This Recipe

I have tons of recipes for chicken salad. But there’s one combination I never used before: lemon and mint. Both of those flavors are so delicious and refreshing. Combining them into one recipe really brings out all of the aroma and taste of this fabulous salad.

Whenever I made a chicken salad I always buy rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. I really dislike having to handle raw chicken, both aesthetically and from a food safety standpoint. Plus, no matter how many methods I use to try to get tender chicken, the rotisserie chickens beat homemade hands down.

Serve this great recipe with some iced tea (made with mint of course) on a screened porch. Yum.
