  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add chicken and cook until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink inside, approximately 20 minutes. Drain, cool and chop.
  2. Meanwhile, place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and slice.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the chicken, sliced eggs, apple, onions, relish, mayonnaise, celery, pineapple (with just a little juice for flavor), cilantro, pecans and fajita seasoning to taste.

This was great, loved it. I am not one for washing more dishes than I have to so I boiled the eggs in the pot with the chicken. I served this on wheat bread, with a leafy lettuce as a sandwich. I served the sandwich with a recipe from this website called Tangy Dill Potatoe salad, also excellent. I cheated on the potatoe salad and used dried dill vs fresh and it was good. I hate spending alot on ingredients if I have something I'll use it.It was a nice cool meal for a hot Texas day. Tonight we are going to have some Bahama Mama's, also on this website. Great combination for a hot day. I made the salads in the am, went shopping and about my day came home and dinner was ready to go. Make the salads in the am and by dinner time the flavors are all absorbed. Good stuff!!

This was just OK for me. I thought the flavor combinations sounded "interesting." There's too many flavors competing. Don't like the addition of the fajita seasoning. Maybe it would be better without.

this was really good chicken salad. i liked the apples for a change instead of grapes. the only thing i ended up doing different was adding 8oz. cream cheese and I preferred that personally, it helped hold it together better. i will make it again though.

My husband and I both enjoyed this very refreshing chicken salad. While some reviewers weren't impressed with the melody of flavors, we thought it was very good! I used fat free mayo to reduce the calories/fat and served it over mixed greens for an excellent and filling lunch!

I thought this was awesome! I made a few adjustments though... I used reduced calorie mayonnaise, left out the cilantro completely and only added about 2 ounces of chopped pecans. This turned out light and very flavorful. Will definitely make again! Thanks!
