I modified for BBQ. 4 C mayo, 2 C sour cream, 4 teas curry blend and put in fridge. 2 small apples, juice from 1 lemon, 8 C cooked chicken breasts cubed, 2 C finely chopped celery, 2 C grapes, 1.5 C pecans, 1# precooked firm pasta. Basically prepared as recipe as instructed. Made just over 18 cups salad. Loved the curry. Did not use pineapple. This is a keeper :)

I did not like it. Too much mayonnaise.

This recipe provided us with a great summer night's meal! It lends itself well to adding any ingredients you'd care to, and it's a great way to use up leftover chicken from another meal. Thanks! We really enjoyed it!

Excellent chicken salad! I made it substantially like the recipe, really liked the additional flavor of the curry powder. But I did change a few things, just based on what I had on hand: light mayo and sour cream, a whole cup of pecans which I toasted, and I used a whole 15-oz can of crushed pineapple in juice. I also added a couple of peeled, seeded, and diced cucumbers from my garden since they needed to get used. Absolutely delicious! I served it with rich whole-wheat rolls at our church Game Night and it was a big hit!

A local tea room served a chicken salad that I loved, so I experimented until I made one very similar to it. This recipe is almost exactly the one I came up with. I did not use apples; I did use whatever I had..raisins, sliced strawberries, grapes, etc. I did not use sour cream; I also added lemon juice and a touch of sugar; and instead of pecans the tea room used salted peanuts (I have also made it with pecans) but I will try the new ideas..sour cream, etc. this recipe uses. I've learned this is a great "make ahead"'s better if kept refrigerated overnight. The recipe has been requested every time I've served it to guests!

This is such a easy recipe to change and use available ingredients. I often use mandarin oranges instead of pineapple. I use all chicken meat because of the great flavor of dark meat. I have also used rotisserie chicken and canned chicken.
