Chicken, Pecan & Cherry Salad

 Chicken, Pecan & Cherry Salad
Already cooked chicken strips make this a super easy meal when I'm trying to get dinner on the table in a hurry. A rotisserie chicken from the grocery store is another road to take when time is short and hungry family members surround the table! —Kellie Mulleavy, Lambertville, Michigan
