If you love deviled eggs and chicken salad, you're going to love this mash-up recipe of two classic favorites. In lieu of filling the egg whites with the traditional creamy yolks, they're filled instead with a lemony dill chicken salad. They're delicious and filling enough to serve either as an appetizer or side dish at brunch.
