Fruity - Nutty Chicken salad...

Gordon Savell


Every time someone new tries it, I have a new fan. My sister and I made it at mom and dad's 50th. It was a real hit.

My husband is a real fan of chicken salad so I often look to him as quite the authority on the matter... and he simply loves this recipe! I chop the apples into very small pieces and really like the way it turns out.

Note: If you don’t have a pressure cooker, just roast your chicken in the oven at 325 for 30 minutes.

How to Make Fruity - Nutty Chicken salad...


  1. Well I use a pressure cooker but you can boil chicken breast.
  2. Place 5 breast in pressure cooker season ( I use seasoning salt, Garlic powder, Pepper and Emeral's bam stuff) Then add water to cover +1-2" and cook for 20 - 25 mins.
  3. In a big bigger! Shred chicken breast (Remove all fat as you go)
  4. Add grapes I usually cut mine in 4-6 pieces...nice little chunks.
  5. Add a good covering of walnuts and pecans.
  6. Add the Red "D" apples...I cut mine into maybe 1/2" chunks. I peel mine but you may like the skin...
  7. Add a good coating of Mayo...salt and pepper to taste. Mix well so you get a little of everything in every bite.
  8. I like mine on regular old saltine crackers but I am sure it would be good on toast as well. It is even good by itself.
