Every time someone new tries it, I have a new fan. My sister and I made it at mom and dad's 50th. It was a real hit.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
My husband is a real fan of chicken salad so I often look to him as quite the authority on the matter... and he simply loves this recipe! I chop the apples into very small pieces and really like the way it turns out.

Note: If you don’t have a pressure cooker, just roast your chicken in the oven at 325 for 30 minutes.

Ingredients

5 large
boneless, skinless chicken breast.
1 bunch
seedless grapes
2 large
red "d" apples
1 jar(s)
mayo
1 pkg
chopped walnuts
1 pkg
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Well I use a pressure cooker but you can boil chicken breast.
2
Place 5 breast in pressure cooker season ( I use seasoning salt, Garlic powder, Pepper and Emeral's bam stuff) Then add water to cover +1-2" and cook for 20 - 25 mins.
3
In a big bowl...no bigger! Shred chicken breast (Remove all fat as you go)
4
Add grapes I usually cut mine in 4-6 pieces...nice little chunks.
5
Add a good covering of walnuts and pecans.
6
Add the Red "D" apples...I cut mine into maybe 1/2" chunks. I peel mine but you may like the skin...
7
Add a good coating of Mayo...salt and pepper to taste. Mix well so you get a little of everything in every bite.
8
I like mine on regular old saltine crackers but I am sure it would be good on toast as well. It is even good by itself.
