1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
? cup red onion, finely minced

? cup celery, finely minced
? cup red bell pepper, diced
? cup cherry tomatoes, diced
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a casserole dish with cooking spray or olive oil. You can buy per-cubed chicken or buy whole chicken breasts and cut them up yourself.
If you cut the kitchen up this way, you will be available to cut the chicken to your liking. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the cubed chicken, the mayonnaise, and the fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Lemon juice out of a bottle may be substituted, if you prefer. Stir the chicken salad.
Now add the sweet pickle relish, red onion, and celery. More mayonnaise may be used if mixture becomes too dry.
Add the red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and the raisins. Lastly add the salt, black pepper, and garlic powder to the chicken salad.
Cream this mixture together well and spoon it into the casserole dish. Spread the chicken salad around evenly. Bake the chicken salad on 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or less depending on the size of your oven.
Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool.
Place the chicken salad into a serving dish with a lid.
Chill the chicken salad before serving.
