I have tried this recipe 3 different times. The first time I made it with some chicken breasts I cooked in stock, and I followed the recipe exactly. I found that the celery and onion were overwhelming. The next time I made it, I used canned chicken. NOT GOOD. I would not recommend the canned chicken. The third time I made it, I shredded leftover whole chicken, left out the celery, and cut down on the onion significantly. It was perfect. If you find you are leery about the amount of onion or celery, I would definitely recommend that you trust your instinct.
YUM! I didn't have grapes so I used apple. It was delicious. Thanks for sharing! :)
FANTASTIC! I use a 12.5 ounce can of chicken in water... thats what I had on hand..I used the pecans and red grapes... great lunch chicken salad! yummmmm
Made this recipe tonight for 25 as I am making finger sandwiches for a wedding tomorrow. Salad is wonderful and glad I kept the recipe just as is except added less onion for the recipe for 25. I am sure it will be a hit at the wedding tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.
I made it just as written except I used mayo instead of miracle whip because that is what I had. Easily the best chicken salad I have had. I will make it now as one of my regular meals when I have left over chicken,
I will be making this for the next family get together. The lil bit of worcestershire sauce puts it over the top! I didnt even have all the correct ingredients (used light mayo) but still tastes great but next time I will make sure to try all the ingredients listed.
Finally made this recipe. Loved, loved, loved it.
