Directions

  1. Cook bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool; crumble.
  2. Mix cooked chicken, crumbled bacon, water chestnuts, celery, and red grapes in a large salad bowl.
  3. Whisk mayonnaise, dried parsley, lime juice, onion powder, ground ginger, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper together to make a smooth dressing.
  4. Pour dressing over chicken mixture and stir to coat.
  5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until cold, at least 30 minutes.

We really enjoyed this - however the 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise seemed like too much - I made the dressing using 1/2 of mayonnaise but kept all the other dressing ingredients the same. It has just right. I served this on top of toasted ciabatta rolls - like an open faced sandwich. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Fixed this for lunch today. I will considering a couple of changes. I love bacon but it got lost/overpowered by the various flavors. The next time, I will substitute pecans or walnuts and take out the bacon. Took the advise of the other reviews and went with 1/2 the mayo.. it was plenty. This salad has a little different flavor but refreshing! It's a keeper.

This Chicken Salad was a hit with my friends...I omitted the water chestnuts (simply because I don't like them) and I substituted one half of the mayo with salad dressing. We used whole wheat croissants for sandwich bread. Delicious!

My husband is very hard to cook for, but I decided to try some things that I like and he can eat something else. We both loved this recipe and he has already asked me to prepare it again.

I have been making this salad for quite some time now and it is always a favorite with my husband. I don't change anything except sometimes I will add instead of grapes…apples or pineapple and maybe some chopped pecans.

FANTABULOUS!!! Love this paired with the fresh broccoli salad by Nora. We also serve it with warmed whole grain pita wedges, which is complementary, and fun for the kiddos...thank you!
