This is an amazing recipe, Sherri! The first time I followed the recipe, the second, I substituted mayo for miracle whip (my family prefers the former) and it turned out just as well! I bought some croissants from the grocery store, slit them in half and we ate them that way...my family could not get enough! Great for potlucks, too...if you dare to share!

Very good! Perfect for our day of drag racing. Ate with forks instead of on sandwiches, very hot at our race trailer this time of year so a cool salad is best, but now going to eat the leftovers open faced broiled with cheese on top. I made double the amount thus allowing for leftovers. Thank you Charlie!

Superb!! I halved the onion amount and omitted grapes. It was soooo good on soft wheat bread!

Very tasty. I almost forgot the Worchestershire, tasted the salad and then realized that I hadn't added it - It really popped the flavor. Great recipe to use up that bit of left over chicken

This is so good. Perfect in summer. Although I did change the Worcestershire sauce to Lea & Perrins for chicken. I liked that taste better. It is good both with and without the nuts.

I really enjoyed this, it's a different and delicious way to prepare chicken salad. I left out the nuts because I don't care for them. I love the extra 'wang' that the grapes and Worcestershire add. Thanks for the recipe!

If you want to make this so much better, toast the nuts before chopping. then use half REAL may & half sour cream in place of the Miracle Whip. Omit the Worcestershire sauce.<br/>Serve with lettuce on croissant rolls.<br/>You will think you died & went to heaven!

I used the Kraft squeezable mayo, and added a little bit of lime & some pepper. This was overall really good, I think the chicken needed a little something so next time I will lightly season it. I got crazy with red grapes, they are a nice touch. I omitted celery;although, it does have a nice crunch. I wanted to find something as good as Mccalister's and I think I just did! I'm letting all the ingredients settle overnight and putting them on a croissant w/ lettuce & tomato slices :) this is delish!

Great chicken salad. Wasn't sure I would like the worchestershire but was good flavor. A bit salty so may cut that a little. Served with potato sticks on top and apple crisp for dessert. Great for a warm day.

Great recipe but suggest using low-fat plain yougurt in place of the Miracle Whip/Mayo. It's healthier and lighter, a huge bonus during the dog days of summer.
