Deluxe Honey Pecan Chicken Salad





 Prep time: 30 Min  Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
4 c cooked chicken breast, cubed
1 1/2 c green or red seedless grapes, sliced
1 c pecans, chopped
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/4 c sour cream
2 Tbsp honey
3/4 c celery, chopped fine (optional)
1 tsp poppy seeds (optional)
seasoning to taste (I use Cajun seasoning, like Tony Cachere)
Directions
Test Kitchen Tips: 4 cups of cooked chicken equals about 2 large chicken breasts or 3 medium-sized chicken breasts. We opted to add the dried cranberries (along with the grapes) and used 1/2 cup.
1. Combine seasoned chicken, grapes, celery (if using), and pecans in a large bowl; set aside.
2. Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, honey, and poppy seeds in a small bowl to blend.
3. Add to chicken mixture. Toss well to coat. Serve over lettuce, or with your favorite bread or crackers.
4. Note: The original recipe doesn't call for celery. I add it when I want to change the taste up a bit and add a little more crunch. It's equally delicious either way. Another variation is to use dried cranberries in place of the grapes.
