This is a good party recipe. If you don't like lemon flavor, you may want to leave out the lemon zest. To speed up the prep time, try using rotisserie chicken rather tha having to cook the chicken from scratch.
I think there is a mis-print. If you actually use 1 cup of Mayo, it will be soupy. I had to throw it away after a few bites! However, when I made the southwestern version - I used 1/4 cup instead of the suggested 3/4 cup, and it was perfect! Do southern folks really make chicken salad soup with Mayo????
