Lemon Chicken Salad

This is a recipe for chicken salad for those who really don't like chicken salad.

I made it for my friends at work... and got raves from the un-chicken salad eaters. It is fresh and lemony~ perfect for these hot summer days. (is lemony a word?)
Lemon Chicken Salad
2 cups cooked chicken
1 lemon
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
1/4 cup capers
1 small jar artichokes, drained
2-4 Tbs mayo
2 Tbs pickle relish
Chop cooked chicken into small chunks. In a mixing bowl, toss chicken, the zest and juice of one lemon, diced onion and parsley. Add capers juice and all. Drain artichokes and chop into bite sized pieces. Stir to combine. Add mayo and pickle relish~enough to hold it all together. Salt and pepper to taste. (I also used a bit of my favorite Italian spice grinder)
This chicken salad has all my favorite flavors. You can't go wrong with lemon, capers, and artichokes!
Y'all enjoy~

Is that sweet or dill pickle relish?

WOW (impressed look). Your Lemon Chicken looks so yummy.

Here I bought a sauce pack for Lemon Chicken so as to skip all the seasonings! and i will try this friday after work.

Gourmety~ capers will make anything go yum.
Kendall~ I prefer sweet... but I would think dill would work too.
Lianne~ I'm glad you tried it!
Sophie~ I need to pop over and see if the lemon chicken seasoning worked.
