My favorite Chicken Salad

This is my favorite Chicken Salad to make for sandwiches. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and with that diagnosis comes Low carb diet to try to level it out. So For the first 2 weeks on this diet I am not allowed any grains, breads, pasta, crackers, chips, etc. . . or fruit. So i am relying alot on meats and veggies.
I didnt take a picture of it since I cant eat it on bread so it looks pretty gross just sitting on my plate. . But trust me , its yummy!

2 Chicken Breast, Cooked and shredded
2 medium sized Dill pickles, shredded
1 Celery Stick, Shredded
4 T. Mayo
1 T. Lemon Juice
1 T. Parsley Flakes
1 T. Mustard
I used a little chopped to chop my chicken, pickles and celery. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir. Serve cold.
There is alot of variations of this recipe. I never make it the same way. Like today I didnt have any celery so I used a slice of onion and diced it instead and added vinegar instead of lemon juice. Sometimes I chop Carrots up and stick in it too instead of celery.
