Ingredients:

4 C cubed, cooked chicken
1 C sliced celery
2 C seedless red grapes, halved (or you can mix red and green grapes)
1 small can mandarin oranges-drained
1/4 C sliced green onions
3/4 C mayo *the real stuff! DON’T USE MIRACLE WHIP!
2 T honey
1 T Dijon Mustard
1/2 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/2 C pecan halves
1 T dried parsley flakes

1. In a bowl, combine the chicken, celery, grapes, pecans and onions.

2. In a small bowl, make the sauce with the honey, mayo, and mustard. Pour the sauce over the mixture and gently toss to coat; add salt and pepper to taste and parsley for a little pretty.

3. Gently…very, very, very, gently, add the mandarin oranges. Don’t stir it to much. Just gently fold it. Otherwise, they get all smooshed and mushy.

Serve with crackers, croissants, lettuce or whatever else sounds tasty!

P.S. This chicken salad is up there with the one Dierburgs makes (for my St. Louis crowd) and Costco makes (for my Washington crowd)!
