Recipe by  

"This is a recipe I discovered by accident. While trying to make the Betty Crocker® chicken salad, I discovered I didn't have all the spices. '...quick, what can I substitute...' This has been a family favorite ever since."

  • Such a basic start... add raisins, celery, or dried cranberries if you like; great on a bed of lettuce or as a wrap!

Easy and delicious - plus it's a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken! I cut the recipe in half since I didn't have pecans I subbed toasted walnuts instead. I used a Red Delicious Apple and I also threw in just a bit of chopped celery and some dried cranberries. I mixed the dressing in a separate bowl before folding it into the chicken and other ingredients. For the dressing I used Hellman's light mayo and cut it with a bit of reduced fat sour cream. I used half apple pie spice and half curry powder along with a bit of salt and pepper. It chilled for just a couple of hours and it came out really good. Overall, a great combination of flavors!

I liked the pie spice, but hubby and kids didn't like it.

What makes this unique is the apple pie spice which I mixed with mayo (actually used Miracle Whip Light). I halved the recipe, but liked the flavor of the spice so much, I used a full 1/2 teaspoon plus. This takes no time to put together, and I would serve this to company with no qualms at all. It tastes good, and the presentation is lovely.

Hello... This is jo1527, JO. I tried to edit the recipe but couldn't. I failed to put in the fact what many have figured out. The apple pie spice and mayo are in fact mixed together first before adding to the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy!

I love this recipe the only change I made to it was I used plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo to make it healthier. Excellent recipe!

This is better than your average chicken salad recipe and my husband loved it. I had my doubts about it because of the fruit and apple pie spice but it was good enough that I will make it again. I did use light mayonnaise instead of the full fat variety and I seasoned my chicken breast before cooking them.

This is basically the same as the recipe I love so much. Instead of apple pie spice, I add a tablespoon of dried tarragon. The flavor really comes out after refrigerating for a couple of hours or even overnight. Makes a great sandwich on whole grain bread or, better yet, spread on graham crackers. Delish!
