An AMAZING Chicken Salad Recipe

When I went back to Florida to help my sister with my dad's service after he passed away, it seems the entire town of Pace, Florida dropped off something to eat throughout the time I was there. We had so much stuff that we couldn't fit it all into the refrigerator but we didn't want to let it all go to waste either so we thought of inventive ways to take care of some of the space issues. We had a few buckets of KFC as well as a couple of rotisserie chickens from the Wal-Mart deli that we just couldn't put into the refrigerator after we got our fill. My sister's got a bunch of cookbooks, the ones that appeal to me the most are not the big named ones but the ones that usually have real life submissions or old time recipes. My sister handed me a book that she'd used a few times and told me to look at the recipe for chicken salad. Sounded great to me so we decided to make it.
We started with shredding a lot of the chicken off the bones from both the rotisserie and KFC chicken, making sure there was no skin, breading or meat in the meat mix. From there...you just mix the following ingredients...This is my absolute favorite recipe for chicken salad. 1 lb cooked de-boned chicken 2 stalks chopped celery 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped 2 tbsp sweet relish 2 tbsp dill relish 1/2 cup mayo 1/2 cup miracle whip Salt & Pepper To Taste. The amazing flavor in this recipe comes from the balance of the tanginess of the miracle whip, sweetness of the sweet relish, savory saltiness from the dill relish and the mildness of mayo. I've tried this without a few of the items and it just doesn't compare to the full on flavor of the unchanged recipe.
