    JulieCooks's Note:

    The cayenne pepper and sweet apricot preserve combination is a great balance. Got this from a magazine a few years ago, perhaps Everyday Food. A bit more sophisticated than regular chicken salad.

      this was awesome. I used greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, omitted the almonds, and used green grapes since that's what i had. yummm

      Loved the slight sweetness from the peach preserves. I toasted my almonds, because I think they add a nice crunch and flavor that way. I mixed up the recipe without the chicken, then took 1/3 of it and added Morningstar Meal Starters "chicken" for my vegetarian daughter. The other 2/3 I made with real chicken. It was wonderful! Thanks!

      I have just made this wonderful chicken salad for the second time at my DH's insistence. We really enjoy this taste combination. The apricot gives it a tangy sweetness and the cayenne gives it a wonderful bit of heat. We added celery for a little more crunch, and really like to use cashews instead of the almonds. However, I have made it both ways and there is no loser. Thanks Julie. Update: Julie, so sorry I forgot to hit the much deserved 5 stars for this great salad.
