Diane M's Loaded Chicken Salad

This is a delicious sweet and savory chicken salad. I like it because it is nice and light without all the mayo. It can be a main course or a side. The dressing is a pretty, pink, sweet onion dressing, but you can use your own dressing if it suits you! (this recipe makes a lg. amt, and the picture shown is only 1/2 a recipe!)
