    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is wonderful either scooped on a bed of lettuce, stuffed in between a pita or slices of whole wheat bread --- plan ahead the mixture needs to chill for 4 hours before serving, don't even bother tasting before that time, the grapes or chopped apple must be added in just before serving --- *note* see bottom of recipe for poaching chicken breasts, I also sometimes like to add in 1/2 teaspoon curry powder, but that is only optional, recipe may be doubled :)

      Great recipe. This reminds me of a recipe from a midwestern department store that has closed, I have their recipe book but you have to cook the dressing, strain, and cool then mix in chicken and fixings. This is great, tasty, quicker, makes an good amount that can be eaten over a weekend or shared. Thanks! Great as usual! ps I substituted for cole slaw mix with buttermilk/rice vinegar/sugar/pepper since I didn't have cole slaw mix and for once had buttermilk in house for another recipe. I think the tanginess is what adds the flavor I was looking for from other recipe I mentioned. GREAT on croissants!

      Ohhhh Kitten! This is another fantastic recipe, no surprise at all, as DH and I have enjoyed all of your recipes I've made. I don't know why you only have 2 reviews, but this is a perfect chicken salad. I had to omit the celery (DH hates it) and added some bits and pieces of cashew, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks again!
