Chicken Salad…the Way I Like It

Her is “kind of” of a recipe for chicken salad.  I say “kind of” because I did not measure anything out; I just put in the amounts I thought fitting.   In addition to chicken and celery, I added grapes, almonds, and red onions to the mixture.  I think you can make this however you like.  If you like dried cranberries, add them, while leaving out the grapes.  If you don’t like nuts, leave them out. My mom puts pecans in hers, and leaves the celery out for my sister.  I think you get the point…chicken salad is a recipe that YOU are in control of.  Enjoy!!  I love to eat mine on a bed of spinach, coupled with a Neiman Marcus popover and strawberry butter.

Dice your red onion and celery, and halve the grapes.  

Poach chicken and cut into cubes.  Place in large bowl.

Add celery, red onion, grapes, and almonds to chicken.

Combine half-and-half and mayonnaise in small bowl.

Pour sauce over chicken mixture to coat.

Serve over a bed of spinach or make a chicken salad sandwich on whole wheat bread.
