You know when you come home from work and there’s something waiting for you that you can’t wait to EAT?! The something that is that good that you even speed a little to get home just so you can get your hands on it. Maybe it’s just me. Yeah, it probably is. This is that good.
My sister is visiting for a few days and my husband sends me a text at about 2:45 pm saying, “Becky is making chicken salad!” So of course it’s all I thought about the rest of the day. It’s that good. I swear it’s addicting.
So here is the recipe, which is originally my mom’s. She can cook. I mean cook! We do our best to match her recipes, but the thing is, nobody in my family ever measures anything! So it’s a tad bit difficult to mimic her masterpieces, but Becky nailed it with this one.
Here’s the recipe:
1/3 of a medium white onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1.5 cups of red seedless grapes, cut in half (can do more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
2 oz Craisins
2 lbs of boneless chicken breasts, poached, then shredded
1.75 cups of mayonaise (can use light mayo for less calories)
1/3 tsp salt (can add more to taste)
1/2 tsp of pepper (add more as needed!)
Mix everything together and refrigerate for a couple hours. Serve with bread or crackers.
It’s killer, I promise. We have this chicken salad at almost all our family gatherings. Mom, thanks for the recipe and thanks to my sis for making it!
