Directions

  1. Rehydrate the cranberries in near-boiling water for about 5 minutes, then drain and set aside on paper towels for a few minutes to dry. Meanwhile, remove the chicken meat from the bones and shred into small pieces. Discard the skin, fat and bones.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the spices, Miracle Whip, and yogurt with the lemon juice until well combined.
  3. Add the shredded chicken, cherries, cranberries, celery, green onions and pecans and mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Chill in the refrigerator at least 45 minutes to one hour, until cold.
  5. Serve along with crackers, or on sandwiches, in hollowed-out tomatoes, or however you like chicken salad--and enjoy.
