Made your recipe as given, & we had an outstanding addition to the table! There were 3 of us, so I had enough later on to take little_wing's tip & made great wraps with some large, soft flour tortillas! I'll certainly be making this one again! Thanks for sharing it!

We made this for a church was such a hit, we've used it for a rehearsal dinner and a funeral reception. Have never garnished with pineapple...we just leave that part off. Everyone who tastes this, loves it and asks for the recipe! When we had to make a lot, we used rotisserie chickens from the store...Delish! Thanks!

Made wraps with this today for lunch and it was loved by all! Made exactly as posted except that I shredded the chicken instead of dicing it, used light mayo and sesasoned slightly with S&P. Loved, loved, loved it. Next time, I might leave out the grapes and just mix in the pineapple. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful mother's recipe!
