Optional: 1-2 Tbsp. fresh herbs, like tarragon, dill, or parsley.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, apple, pecans, celery and cranberries.
Add 1/3 cup mayo along with the lemon juice, salt, and pepper (and herbs, if using). Stir to combine, adding a few more tablespoons of mayo, if desired, depending on how well-dressed you prefer your chicken salad.
Taste and add additional salt or seasonings, to taste.
Store chicken mixture in an airtight container in the fridge up to 4 days.
