Almond Chicken Salad with Grapes Recipe

  • 1 pound Diced Cooked Chicken Breast
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1 cup red or green grapes halved
  • 3 stalks of celery diced small
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Combine, salt and pepper to taste, best if it has a few hours to chill, for the flavors to blend.  Keep in refrigerator and serve on a roll, tortilla wrap, bagel…. or just plain bread.  Either way it is fabulous. This my personal favorite, hope you enjoy it too.

You can cook the chicken breast any way you want.  But I prefer to roast it in the oven or do a quick boil…. but if I boil it I always add a little onion, celery, and garlic to the water.  Gives it a much better flavor.

Once the chicken is cooked thru, cooking time will vary on size of breast. I normally cook them 25-35 minutes.  Take them out, and let them rest on a cutting board to cool.

Once they have cooled down some (normally 10 minutes) chop them into small bite sized pieces. Put them into the refrigerator to cool even more.

Chop your veggies, add all the ingredients in a bowl.

Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

This is a fabulous recipe! My mom's made it for years! It's also good with pecans in place of the almonds!

I've been looking for a recipe like this! My Mom made a great chicken salad sandwich a while back and when I asked for the recipe, she said she had just kinda winged it and didn't really have one. Now I have one - yay!

This recipe is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing!! Think I will substitute the leftover turkey for the chicken since I can't think of anything else to do with it.
