Apricot Chicken Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by JulieCooks

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 is DELICIOUS! I used a rotisserie chicken because I hate cooking chicken. I subbed plain Greek yogurt for the mayo as ShortieNJ suggested and it was perfect. YUM!
