  3. Make the dressing, mix in the eggs and vegetables: In a large bowl, mix the mayo, mustard, vinegar, paprika, Cajun seasoning and horseradish together.
  4. Mix in the eggs, celery, green pepper, green onion.
  5. Dice chicken, mix with salad: Using a slotted spoon, remove the chicken from the poaching water* and dice it.
  6. Mix it in with the remaining ingredients.
  7. Add salt and hot sauce to taste. Chill before serving.
  8. Serve over butter lettuce or between two pieces of bread for a sandwich.
  9. *The resulting poaching liquid is a light, salted chicken broth. You can save it and pour it into a cup and drink it as a light soup if you want.
