Creamy Chicken Salad with Fruit and Walnuts
By The Gourmet Farm Girl
This recipe is easy and a great spread for a sandwich or just as is with some additional fruit and crackers. Kids will like this one too with the sweetness of the fresh grapes; apples work well in this recipe also.
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
½ cup sliced green or red seedless grapes or
½ cup chopped apples
¼ cup chopped celery
2-3 Tablespoons chopped red onion
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
¼ cup reduced fat salad dressing (I use Miracle Whip)
Cut the chicken into small chunk and in a medium size skillet sprayed with cooking spray cook the chicken for 7-10 minutes till cooked through.
Place the chicken in a bowl; cover with plastic wrap and let cool in the refrigerator.
Prepare the remaining ingredients and when the chicken is cold mix all together and chill for several hours before serving; this also gives it time to flavor up. You may need to adjust the salad dressing; if the salad is not creamy enough add a spoon full at a time to the right consistency.
