Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sliced grapes
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tsp tarragon
  • 1/4 cup chopped waltnuts
  • salt & pepper to taste

Optional

  • 1/2 cup apples
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberry
  • 1/3 cup celery

Instructions

  • For this recipe we used rotisserie chicken.
  • Make sure chicken is fully cooked and cooled.
  • Chop or shred chicken into pieces.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix.
  • Serve chilled on your favorite bread, in a wrap or on a bed of lettuce.

Notes

Apples and cranberries are always amazing in chicken salad, but if you don't have them on hand, even just the chicken salad basics are delicious for this lunch or dinner option.
If adding in the optional apples, cranberries and celery, you may want to add an additional TBS or two of mayonnaise. Just enough to be creamy but not saturated.
