Best if refrigerated over night and additional dressing added before serving. To dress it up sprinkle with sliced almonds. Yummy! I saw this recipe in the Spokesman review a few years ago.

How to Make Chicken, Pasta, Grape Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Blend mayo, sugar, rice wine, and spices in small bowl with whisk. NOTE: It is very important to use the right rice wine. You need sweet rice wine, not vinegar!
  • 2Cook, cool and dice chicken. Cook pasta per package directions, drain and run under cool water, drain again. In separate bowl combine diced chicken, pasta, grapes and celery. Add dressing and mix gently. Chill 2 hours. (I cook my chicken breasts in broth to boost the flavor.)
  • 3Note: If you make this and let it sit for a few hours, (or over night) it tends to soak up all the dressing. I usually double the dressing and add as needed.
  • 4Note II: If I intend this to be a main dish meal in the summer time I will add more chicken. Served with crusty bread it is a perfect, ready "when you are" meal.
