I thought that this was a very good classic chicken salad recipe. I made sandwiches with it and served it on Hawaiian rolls and the sweetness really complemented the bold flavors of the dijon mustard and onions. I left out the nuts and grapes as I didn't have any on hand, but it was still great. Thanks for sharing.

I used this recipe, with no variations, for sandwiches and added lettuce and a few strips of crispy bacon on top. My family LOVED them, including my 3 year old! My husband and I had seconds. I will definitely be using this recipe in the future and I'm already thinking about when I can double the recipe and serve it for special occasions.

A few minor changes - used fresh squeezed lemon juice and Country (grain) dijon mustard and left out the grapes and nuts. I will add those items to my portion only as the rest of the family doesn't care for them in their salad. I think dried cranberries would be good too. Very yummy salad!

This recipe brought back long lost childhood memories! When I was small, my mom and I would go to on a shopping trip to Chicago twice a year, and we always ate lunch at one of the big department stores. I remember loving this chicken salad then (I thought putting grapes in the chicken salad was the funniest thing!) and I still love it now. I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks so much!!

This is the most delicious chicken salad I have ever had. I wanted to bring lunch for the ladies that I work with and decided on chicken salad sanwiches. I made the recipe without the grapes or pecans. I had never used my food processor for meat, and it was brilliant! The chicken was chopped perfectly! My friends LOVED it! They all requested this recipe. I have added this to my recipe collection and will be making this again!

I have been trying and trying and failing and failing for the perfect chicken salad recipe. I'm kind of a chicken salad person. This has by far surpassed all my expectations. It was so yummy, and I am so excited that I have finally found something that I liked! My sisters also agree! Thanks so much!

This is so delicious and easy! I used a whole rotisserie chicken, which got me 3 cups of chicken, so I doubled the recipe. I made it tonight for a brunch tomorrow, and I couldn't stop sampling it! Used olive oil mayonnaise, about half the lemon juice (I ran out), and omitted pecans. I'm going to spread onto crusty rolls with fresh spinach leaves-- yummy...

Awesome Chicken Salad. I think the addition of sour cream makes the dish. It doesnt have such a heavy mayo flavor like other chicken salads. I used walnuts instead of pecans, and red grapes instead of green. Wrapped in tortilla wraps with some lettuce. Went over great for a potluck I attended. Great recipe!

Excellent salad. I didn't have grapes, so left them out. I probably used more like 2 cups of chicken, so mine may have came out a little less moist than it should have. Still great though!
