3.Whisk mayonnaise, cream and juice in small bowl. Combine chicken with celery, onion, pickle and herbs in large bowl, toss gently to combine. Place lettuce leaves on serving platter, top with salad and bread, drizzle with mayonnaise mixture.

We used whole-egg mayonnaise in this recipe. Cooling chicken in liquid prevents the chicken from drying out.
