Summer Chicken Salad

This chicken salad is a great summer meal for lunch or dinner.  It's easy to make and oh so good.  Give it a try.

Summer Chicken Salad

Two cans of canned chicken breast
 (you could also use cooked chicken breast, cut and shredded into small pieces)

2 T lemon juice

1/4 cup GOLDEN raisins (don't use regular ones)

1 t fresh chopped tarragon (or 1/2 t dried)


salt and pepper to taste

Combine the chicken, lemon juice, raisins and tarragon.  Add just enough mayo to hold everything together and mix well.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve on whole wheat or white bread with fancy lettuce and you have a tasty meal. The sweetness of the golden raisins and the tarragon make this dish delicious.  I have used this recipe for tea sandwiches at bridal showers and it is always a hit.
