Lemon Tarragon Chicken Salad

This is no ordinary chicken salad!  The addition of fresh lemons and tarragon make it so special, especially in the summer.  If you don’t have tarragon, you can use any fresh herb, such as basil or cilantro.  My favorite way to eat chicken salad is with Frito Scoops!

1 roasted chicken, meat removed, bones and skin discarded
3/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
2 tbsp. fresh tarragon, chopped
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
zest of one lemon
salt and pepper, to taste

Shred chicken into small pieces and place in a bowl.  In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients and fold into shredded chicken.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
