Creamy Pineapple Chicken Salad

Today was a new experiment for me, and this is what I came up with. I had a very ripe pineapple, some grapes and 2 pounds of chicken...so thought instead of the normal apples in this salad, I'd use pineapple...I happened to have some pineapple preserves that I used to flavor the mayonnaise base...if you don't have fresh pineapple, drained pineapple would be fine...you could actually use, peach, apricot or pineapple preserves for the dressing...they would all work.
