Reviews for Chunky Chicken Salad with Grapes and Pecans
"What a fantastic recipe for chicken salad! This is not my momma's Indiana chicken salad but a whole lot better!! It is not sweet but tangy and an almost duplicate of a local family-owned grocery store here in Baton Rouge recipe that I love but is ubber expensive so a rare treat. I did not add the onion and my only change was I poached my chicken breasts seasoning the water with poultry seasoning, grey sea salt (found in my son's kitchen when I packed him to move and since I'm sure it was left from last girlfriend since he rarely cooks I appropriated) and pepper. It takes less than 20 minutes to poach the chicken breasts (I used boneless-skinless) and I like the taste of the sort of pure chicken if you will as opposed to the rotisserie and I was trying to make it as close to the store- bought as I could get!! Throw in a handful of Craisins as an extra surprise!!"
"This recipe has become one of our favorites."
"The grapes give this a nice flavor"
"Very good. A pleasant difference from the same old chicken salad. The grapes add an elegant element to the salad."
"I eliminated the onion to keep this a "fruity' salad. Delicious!!"
