I love chicken salad and was playin' in the kitchen one day and created this recipe. I was low on mayo so I extended it with creamed cheese. Yummy! I think I now know how those deli chicken salads taste so creamy & rich. The addition of grapes and apple, or pineapple send it over the top in goodness. I learned the hard way not to use fresh pineapple in this salad. It turned the chicken slimy so had to throw that batch out. The prep time does not include the cook time for the chicken, but i usually just use a rotisserie chicken from Sam's Club.
