Lighter Chicken Salad

I always make my chicken salad from scratch by cooking the chicken breast in chicken broth and I usually add some onion, parsley and celery to the broth to give the chicken a lot of flavor. Using light mayonnaise and some of the broth keeps the chicken salad moist without having to add too much mayo.
