This is a wonderful version of chicken salad. I did use light mayo and light sour cream to make this a tad bit less caloric. There were no left-overs and we all had it different ways. I had it on a sandwich and my husband had it just in a bowl. He actually ate it right out of the bowl I made it in. :)

BEST chicken salad EVER!!!! My husband and son asked for more the next day, so of course, I doubled the recipe.

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!!

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!!

I was expecting a little more from this - the grapes added a nice touch of sweetness and the pecans and celery a bit of crunch, but it wasn't really special, just pretty good...

This is the best chicken salad we ever ate. I substituted almonds for pecans plus added chopped dried cherries & shredded cheddar cheese. My family is always asking for it.
