Serve this main-dish salad over fresh spinach. Regular spinach is the least expensive option, but you'll have to remove the stems. If time is your main concern, buy baby spinach.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Brush both sides of chicken evenly with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Let stand 10 minutes; shred. Place chicken in a large bowl. Add celery and next 3 ingredients (through green onions); toss.

Step 3

Combine sour cream and remaining ingredients, stirring well. Add sour cream mixture to chicken mixture; toss to coat.

I loved this recipe! Very easy to prepare on a busy weeknight. Several changes I made: I left out the celery, as I don't like raw celery. I sliced and diced a Granny Smith apple and threw it in. then, I was out of pecans and used chopped walnuts instead. I served it over fresh baby spinach added to mixed baby greens. My husband liked this very much too.

Good, solid chicken salad recipe. A nice blend of textures and flavors. I used slivered toasted almonds since i had no pecans on hand. I also added some lemon zest to the dressing for added citrus flavor. A delicious, quick meal for lunch or dinner.

I am a sucker for chicken salad, and this has to be my new favorite since it is so health conscious! I liked the fact you cook your own chicken and can adjust the seasonings. The pecans and cranberries are so good! I served this over spinach and added about 1/4 cup slice red onions (it shows it in the picture, but doesn't mention it-- but it does gel with the meal). I am going to make this again,but try it on some nice toasted whole wheat bread with a romaine leaf. Quite honestly, this is better than some of the ones you get a sandwich stores!
