My Favorite Chicken Salad!

Now that summer is just around the corner(well, sort of) it's time to whip out the chicken salad! This is my favorite version. Simple and grapey. Just the way a chicken salad should be. If you like nuts in your chicken salad, add some lightly toasted sliced almonds to this. Served on croissant rolls, or just by it's self it will get you ready for picnic season either way =)


2 1/2 lbs Chicken breasts, cooked and cut into 1/2" cubes. (I usually just throw the raw chicken into a pot of boiling water and let it simmer until the are cooked through. Then run the cooked chicken under cold water to cool down, pat dry, and dice.)
2-3 c. Red Grapes, washed and halved
4 stalks celery, diced
3 green onions, sliced


3/4 c. Mayo
3/4 c. Miracle whip
1/3 c. Lemon Juice
tt. Seasoned Salt

In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, celery, grapes, and green onion. Set aside.
Place the mayo, miracle whip, lemon juice, and salt into a smaller bowl and stir with a whisk until well combined. Pour the dressing over the chicken salad and toss until thoroughly coated. Serve chilled.
