This chicken salad is amazing, the combination of grapes with pecans, mixed in with a creamy mixture of mayonnaise, dijon mustard and honey go so beautiful with the perfectly juicy chicken. It’s so easy to make and always ready to go, you pack it up and take it to work or school and it’ll never let you down.

  1. My sister in law made good chicken salad with the grapes 🍇 but I may remember her using almonds? I've been wanting to try making it. Found another recipe I'd wanted to try and now I'm intrigued by yours. Looking forward to 3.
    ** I however would make it easier on myself and just use a rotisserie chicken. Lol

  2. I just wanted to tell you that I made this last night and it's one of the most delicious chicken salads that I've ever had. Thank you so much for this recipe.
    On a side note, I just found your channel last weekend when I needed a different tamale recipe. Your tamales are outstanding and this is coming from a S TX native.
