It is such a prissy girl food...and although I am not a prissy girl, I sure do love my prissy girl chicken salad!
I have several wonderful chicken salad recipes that I cling to, but I think this one has climbed it's way to the top of the list. I love the sweet yet tangy flavor that the pineapple renders. It really adds a lot of flavor without being over the top.
Oh, and for all of you chicken salad loving dude's...it's alright...your secret is safe with me!
4 cups cubed cooked chicken breast (4 large breast or 2 cans)
2 cups diced celery
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sliced almonds
1-20oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 pound seedless grapes, cut in half
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, celery, mayonnaise, and almonds, and mix well. Gently fold in the pineapple and grapes.
