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.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Apples, grapes, and nuts in a chicken salad add fantastic texture and flavor. Cooking the chicken in the pressure cooker with the seasonings enhances the flavor of the chicken. This is a well-balanced and delicious chicken salad. It's tasty on its own. Or, serve it on a flaky, buttery croissant. If you're a fan of chicken salad, you're going to enjoy this recipe.
If you don’t have a pressure cooker, just roast your chicken in the oven at 325 for 30 minutes.
I use a pressure cooker but you can boil the chicken breasts. Place 5 breasts in a pressure cooker.
Add seasonings. I use seasoning salt, garlic powder, pepper, and Emeril's Essence.
Then add water to cover chicken by 1-2". Cook for 20 - 25 mins.
In a big bowl, shred chicken breast (remove all fat as you go).
Add grapes. I usually cut mine in 4-6 pieces...nice little chunks.
Add a good covering of walnuts and pecans.
Add the Red Delicious apples. I cut mine into maybe 1/2" chunks. I peel mine but you may like the skin.
Add a jar of mayo. Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix well so you get a little of everything in every bite.
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.
