Very good! I used at least 3 cups of diced chicken. I think only 2 cups wouldn't be enough chicken in relation to the amounts of other ingredients. I used a combination of pineapples and grapes as suggested; that's a great combination. I added some chopped onion for some extra flavor. I liked the creaminess that the sour cream gave. The curry and the toasted almonds added a special something too. Thanx for posting this. I'll make this again (with my little changes/additions).

This is a really good chicken salad! I made as written and then put it in the fridge to meld and decided it needed more chicken, it was a little to creamy. I also added a little minced shallot and didn't toast the almonds. Served this on rolls rather than on lettuce. Made for ZWT-7~THE HOT PINK LADIES.

Whipped this up for a quick and easy lunch. The flavors of the fruit complimented the chicken nicely. I was debating adding onion (as I now see Parsley did) but decided not to and it was still very good. I just used slivered almonds, untoasted. Will make again for sure.
