This twist on a chicken salad is absolutely fabulous!! I add more fruit and chicken than the recipe calls for to add a little more substance (also try adding grapes- yum!) I also add only about half of the dill. Try serving over a bed of mixed greens-- SO GOOD! My husband loves it! He asks for it ALL the time - and he HATES salad!!! :) A+

I didn't care for this at all. The dill didn't seem to go with the fruit.

I loved this recipie. I didn't think my husband would like it because it mixes meat and fruit (a definate not with him) but he really liked it too. I served it on crossinats with fresh lettuce from the garden. I replaced the pecans with sliced almonds. Used 2 large chicken breasts, next time I'll use 3.

I made this for some of my family that were visiting. The only thing I did not do is add the dill. I'm just not real crazy about dill. I served it with croissants/green leafy lettuce. Everyone, including myself, enjoyed it very much.

We used three chicken breasts, and it was great.

Substituted almonds. Very easy and very tasty!

Waaaaaay too much dill! But the canned fruit was really nice. I added about a cup of macaroni to try to balance out the spices.

Great simple salad. I put it on top of my salad - just greens with some vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. The buttery croissants were a good addition.
