This is a great recipe to build on. I would rate this recipe a 4 as is..and a 10 with a few modifications.
Here are a few suggestions to turn this into a 10. I doubled the recipe.
Use one "broasted chicken".
Use one 8 oz. cream cheese
Add one packet of sweetNLow to pineapple juice.
Add a couple stalks of celery
Use cashews for the nuts.
Dressing use 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream
Throw in a little green onion
Throw in some dill.
Thanks so much for this recipe. Its
Brought it to a potluck and it wasn't very popular... didn't like the canned chicken very much - I changed out the almonds for Macadamia nuts since it was Hawaiian.
I made this for a Hawaiian themed potluck at work and it was a big hit. I doubled the recipe. I added an extra 1/2 cup more pinapple then suggested. I used one cream cheese package 8 oz instead of 2 3oz. The only thing I would suggest is adding 2 packages of Splenda with your pinapple juice ( as previously suggested). I didn't want to add too much juice for fear of making it runny. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. Will make this again!
I absolutely love this recipe!! The cream cheese adds a flavor that melds perfectly with the Miracle Whip tang! I like to use walnuts instead of almonds, and I use fresh grilled chicken breast in place of the canned, and it is soo good. I eat it until I pop!!
I just made this and my husband is already having seconds. It is very good. I did, however, change two things about the recipe. Instead of using cannced chicken, I cut up and cooked frozen chicken tenders. I also substituted walnuts for the almonds. It tasted great!
Good chicken salad. Used walnuts instead of almonds. Would be good with mandarin oranges, too.
What a great chicken salad! I used low fat cream cheese to keep down the calories and the flavor was fabulous!
I halved this recipe to use up some leftover chicken. I used green and purple grapes since the recipes doesn't state which to use. Next time I will use the purple or red grapes only cause they add a touch of sweetness. I added chopped walnuts instead of almonds, served on large fresh spinach leaves on top of pita triangles.
