The amounts listed are only a guideline since I don't even bother measuring please feel free to adjust all ingredients to suit taste but please try not to omit anything all the ingredients blend together perfectly! You could use all mayonnaise but I prefer half mayonnaise and yogurt or sour cream for a lighter texture, if you are making this in advance then add in the diced apple just before serving. If you are a curry-lover then try adding in 1/2 to 1 teaspoon curry powder into the mayo mixture, I think you will be quite surprised at the taste! This is one of the best recipes for chicken salad!... For a luncheon, double or triple the complete recipe and serve this on a bed of lettuce with tomato wedges around the chicken salad then sprinkle more toasted almonds on and around the chicken salad... your guests will rave!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl combine the cooked chicken with celery, onion, raisins, grapes, chopped apple and almonds; toss to combine.
  2. In a bowl combine the mayonnaise with yogurt and honey until combined (if you are adding in the curry powder then combine with the mayonnaise mixture) add to the chicken mixture; toss to combine well, then season with black pepper to taste.
  3. *NOTE* If making in advance add in apple just before serving.

Made this today and it is sooooo good! I didn't have an apple so I subbed some mandarin oranges. Although I loved the curry powder, it is good without it also. One more change; I didn't have any raisins but I did have a bag of mixed dried berries so I added those in place of the raisins. This is going on permanent rotation. Thanks for yet another fabulous recipe Kitten!

great, great, great! I told my husband that it was "no good" and that I'd have to do the honorable thing and eat it all myself since I didn't want him to get sick...LOL! I've made a lot of chicken salads but I think this one is my favorite to date. Everything is amazing! I did toss in a little curry powder and the flavor was just right. Thanks for an amazing recipe!
