Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 cups cooked chicken breasts (I use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut the cooked chicken into cubes (discard the skin).
  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken with the rest of the ingredients. Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve on croissants, sandwiches, lettuce "cups," or as is. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Storing: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Mayonnaise substitutes: Use Greek yogurt, sour cream, or both. You may need to add extra seasoning if not using mayo.
  • Which types of grapes to use? I'd recommend red, seedless grapes. Avoid grapes that are too soft or sour.
  • Instead of pecans, try walnuts, almonds, or cashews.
  • Other add-ins: diced apples, raisins, chives.
