My Uncle Wiley lives in Winter Haven Florida. We try to visit him a couple of times a year. I love to cook, so I cook while I am there, unless we are going to some of the great restaurants in the area. But he makes the best chicken salad I have ever eaten. I brought this recipe home with me. My family and friends absolutely love it, so I thought that I would share it with you.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yum, Uncle Wiley knew what he was doing with this chicken salad recipe. It's creamy with tender, juicy chicken. Crispy grapes and crunchy pecans add a lovely texture to the chicken salad. Craisins add sweetness and tartness that put the flavor over the top. The addition of sour cream to this chicken salad adds a delicious tang that we can't get enough of. This recipe makes a lot so come hungry!
