Another one of those recipes that I have to keep copies of on hand because I get so many requests for it. Great on croissants or with any type of cracker.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
We could eat this chicken salad for lunch every day. It's that good. Sweet, with just a hint of tang, the dressing is delicious. When the dressing is mixed with the chopped chicken breast, pecans, grapes, and dried cranberries, it's a wonderful bite. Serve in lettuce cups, as a sandwich, or just enjoy this chicken salad right from the bowl. It's light and refreshing for summer.
seasoning to taste (I use Cajun seasoning, like Tony Cachere)
How To Make deluxe honey pecan chicken salad
Test Kitchen Tips
4 cups of cooked chicken equals about 2 large chicken breasts or 3 medium-sized chicken breasts. We opted to add the dried cranberries (along with the grapes) and used 1/2 cup.
Combine seasoned chicken, grapes, celery (if using), and pecans in a large bowl; set aside.
Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, honey, and poppy seeds in a small bowl to blend.
Add to chicken mixture. Toss well to coat. Serve over lettuce, or with your favorite bread or crackers.
Note: The original recipe doesn't call for celery. I add it when I want to change the taste up a bit and add a little more crunch. It's equally delicious either way. Another variation is to use dried cranberries in place of the grapes.
