Tarragon chicken salad with bacon

After searching and attempting for years, I’ve finally found a truly good chicken salad recipe. I started with a highly-rated recipe online and started tweaking. I ended up making quite a few alterations, but I’m so thrilled with the result, I’ve already added it to my regular rotation. This is loaded with flavor!

A few notes: I started with simple baked boneless chicken breasts. I’m not a huge fan of sweet elements in my chicken salad, so I steer away from fruit and nuts. However, either or both could be added easily. Finally, don’t skip the tarragon; it makes this dish!
