Too basic really. And it needs more to it to be flavorful. No measurements isn't really helpful but I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt because it does let you be flexible with quantities if you aren't new in the kitchen.

Talk about basic! Although for someone who has never made chicken salad before, having some more measurements would be nice.

This is perfect. I just had chicken salad for the first time at a funeral luncheon and it was wonderful. Every time I'd seen it previously people seemed to put all kinds of "junk" in it that did not appeal to me. This seems to be exactly the way the one I liked was made and am really looking forward to trying it.

This recipe, as written is good - and it is simple, but it is a little TOO "basic" for my tastes. I use the same ingredients listed, but I always add some finely chopped celery, minced onion, sweet relish, just a touch of tarragon (all to taste) and I dust the chicken (LIGHTLY!) with a little red pepper prior to cooking it.
Pressed into a mold it makes a nice generic party dip and just a spritz of cooking spray allows it to release easily so you can keep it molded/covered until you reach the party, or it will keep (sealed) for a few days in the refrigerator for a quick lunch.
