"This recipe is great for picnics and potluck luncheons. It's cool, light, and great for a hot day's lunch on the patio. Serve on crescent rolls, with crackers, or your favorite bread."

2 (10 ounce) cans
chicken chunks, drained
seedless green grapes, halved
1 (8 ounce) can
mandarin oranges, drained
creamy cucumber salad dressing
I used three chicken breasts that I broiled instead of canned chicken. I also decided on the black grapes (they looked red but were labeled as black) because of their flavor. I opted to use about 1/3 cup of mayo instead of the cucumber dressing simply because I had it on hand.
Served on croissants, it was exactly what I anticipated, a light and fruity chicken salad. Yum.
Thanks for a simple and delicious recipe. It's now one of my favorites and will be keeper.
This was a really great recipe, although the chicken from the can was a little salty. Next time I am going to use fresh chicken.
Nice twist on chicken salad, however if I were going to go so far as to call it "gourmet" I wouldn't used canned chicken... I opted to use some leftover citrus grilled chicken I had on hand. I also used some red grapes for a little color. I didn't have cucumber salad dressing so I used Hellman's light mayo cut with a bit of sour cream and added a bit of salt, pepper and just a bit of curry powder. Overall, very good on toasted whole grain bread.
I used red grapes instead of green, used Miracle Whip for the dressing, and chose walnuts over almonds. This recipes was awesome. The flavors go great together. Definitely a keeper!
I increased the recipe to nine servings from six. I left out the oranges, and I used a total of two cups of grapes. I also used red grapes and not green. I only had about a half cup of celery, and I threw in a cup of almonds. I actually thought that there were too many almonds, so I'll decrease them next time. There was also a salty taste, and I don't know if that came from the nuts, or from using canned chicken. I've never used it before. I was trying to duplicate a recipe that I lost several years ago, and this was close. My kids and husband loved it. I was disappointed, but maybe just because I was expecting my "old" recipe. We'll try it again, though!
I love it! It is my favorite. I use red grapes to add more color. Something I will make again.
I liked this recipe, but made a few changes that worked really well. I added cucumbers and crasins. Instead of plain almond, I used ranch flavored salad topper alamonds and mayo instead of the cucumber dressing. Very tasty!
I loved this recipe but my picky 10 year old son did not. My 3 year old liked it pretty well though.
I will save this for parties at work or lunch with girlfriends and serve hot dogs to the kids. ;-)
