    Good, tasty salad. Perfect for a ladies luncheon, not for sandwiches. I reduced the amount of grapes to 2 cups (cut first then measured) which was more than enough. Great way to use left-over chicken from last nights dinner.

    This is the recipe that I use a lot, but I also add fresh rosemary and just a little squeeze of lemon juice, which makes it delicious. What I find that works great is to mix the mayonnaise, sour cream and rosemary together and refrigerate it overnight. I do prefer to use 1 part mayonnaise to 1/2 part sour cream. Taste to test amount of rosemary you prefer also. Once the taste is to your liking, add to other ingredients. Wonderful chicken salad and everyone seems to love it when I make it.

    the best Chicken Salad. I used shredded chicken instead of Cut up breast and it made it better. Wonderful! My favorite. It makes a great sandwich or dinner salad, with a nice ham.

    This recipe is best when made with full fat mayo. I have made it many many times and it gets rave reviews, but I only use real Hellmans. I recently made it for a group of 15 ladies at a Scrapbook function and had to make more. I think I made 10 lbs of chicken salad that was totally consumed over a 4 day weekend. It is wonderful on crackers but our favorite is a croissant, without a doubt.

    What is going on with this system? It showed corn bread choices & brought up the same chicken choices that have been there for days!! The only way I have to complain is with this nonsense. Is anyone awake there?

    Ridiculously simple but full of taste. Hardest part is poaching and shredding the chicken. Absolutely love it and everyone complemented it at the party. It was fine by itself or on a croissant.

    this was delicious! I added more sour cream and less mayo to save on calories. I also added fresh parsley and omitted the lemon juice. My family loved it!

    I added sweet chopped apples and glazed pecans and it gave it a great sweet flavor.

    I make this frequently and it is a favorite among my friends! I do the chicken a little differently, I bake chicken breasts in a pyrex pan and season with a little olive oil and Tony C's cajun seasoning and bake it for 40 minutes at 350, then cube it. The spiced chicken along with the sweetness of the grapes is divine! I think toasting the pecans makes all the difference!

    This is the best and easiest chicken salad I have ever made. I made if for the first time this week and we like it so well that I made a second time today. My husband loved it, but I wasn't sure since it had grapes and pecans! Its not the usual way I make chicken salad, but will definitely be my choice from now on...I plan on making it for my daughter's wedding reception to serve on crossiants. I chopped my chicken and pecans in my food processor which made the preparation very easy and quick!
