This is a combination I tried on a whim and it really paid off! Don't let the idea of stirring cranberry sauce into chicken salad scare you...it's a really delicious combination. And when you add apples and nuts to the mix...yum!
Drain chicken. Add apple, celery and nuts and gently stir. In a small bowl, whisk the mayo and the cranberry sauce. Add to chicken and stir to combine. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve on lettuce leaves, or sandwiches.
